Okay, I hope I can get some answers here....since I'm coming in long after the discussion's over. I went out and bought the borax and acid.
Had to add 28oz of acid (per pool calc) to get my TA/ph where they need to be. TA was 90 and Ph 7.3 When adding the acid...my goodness, the fumes about killed me. I had to add it over the side of the pool at the return and duck down behind the wall while I was doing it!????? Am i missing something here? I can't imagine doing 4 Gal of the stuff this way!!!!! Also, after you put the borax in, can I run my rover jr pool cleaner to mix? I don't have access to the walls all the way around the pool. Lastly, how long after till you can swim in the pool? you say don't test for 48 hrs, but nothing about entering the pool prior to that. Hopefully, I can get some answers before tomorrow when the borating begins~!!
