I have an Intex AGP that is 8500 Gallons (18x52). It is filled with Well water but the water is fairly potable so I am not to worried about it. I have my first readings and in using the Pool Calculator the Borate references are confusing me. The testing strips I am using test for Total Bromine, Free Chlorine, Alkalinity, pH, and Calcium Hardness. My levels are as follows:
I can't (yet) test for borates and the calculator tells me not to add anything in the pH section because the TA is 0 and the Borates is 0. Reading the Pool School it mentions that there isn't really a need to test for borates....I'm Confused!!
Thanks in advance for your help
