    Health Canada warns about the use of Boric acid and possible health effects...

    I was planning on adding borax to my pool because of all the benefits. However, it seems Health Canada has issued some warnings about the potential effects of exposure. Not sure if it is a good idea with these warnings being issued...

    Welcome to TFP!

    Adding borates is not required for a TFPC pool. If you are nervous skip them.
