ok, so after a long battle with some mustard algae to start off my season that i hopefully have won (fingers crossed), and finally getting the shock level to hold overnight, i am ready to to take the next step to make sure my pool is ready to go. here are my current levels:
FC 13.5 (coming down from shock level)
i know i need to get my CYA up so i just put it in to get my level up to 70. in my exuberance to get everything in and have my pool ready, i also wanted to add Borax tonight for the first time. i've read the process so many times i know i can do it. my question is: are there any issues with adding Borax before the CYA has completely dissolved? i can still see some of CYA that has collected on the bottom and I know it takes a while for it to completely dissolve. i can wait until tomorrow if i have to, i am just so excited after 7 days of really hard work to get things where they are know.
on a side note, i want to extend my sincerest thanks to all of you on this site. without your help and guidance that you post, there is no way i could have gotten this mess cleared this quickly. i would still be the dummy that knew nothing about his pool and went to the pool store every weekend. the next round is on me!
