I read through the whole Borates how and why post, but still have a concern.
My TA has been very high since we refilled our pool (CYA was at 150ppm), so I have been working on lowering the TA with MA. I will wait to add borates until I have my TA at the right levels.
All the research I have done so far has taught me not to add more than a Quart of MA at a time. I am interested in adding Borates with Borax, but am worried that adding 1.5 gallons of MA, all at once (and twice to add a total of 3 gallons) will damage my pool.
Also, what is a good place to buy the LaMotte Borate test strips? I just ordered my TF100 test kit 2 days ago, should I have ordered the borate strips from TFTeststrips.com as well?
