I've been lurking for a bit preparing for my seasonal pool. I would first like to say a big thank you to everyone on this forum. The information here has been wonderful, and I was able to set-up and so far so good (filled on 7/3/2016).
I have a couple of quick questions. I have just the basic Cl/Ph tester. Ph is 7.2 and Cl around 3. Do I need to worry at all about alkalinity or just roll with what I got? I keep seeing the benefits of borates...should I consider putting borates in my little puddle or am I going too far down the rabbit hole?
Thanks for your time guys and gals!
