I recently had our pool re-done completely. It is a sculpted cement pool (looks like natural rock) and also re-did the floor of the pool also with a plaster similar to pebbletec.
The remodel was completed about 3 months ago and I also converted to a SWG at that time.
I read the pool school and followed the SWG section and have the levels all at the recommended levels. However I have been adding acid daily because the PH constantly rises. I add about 15 - 20 oz. daily to keep the PH in the 7.6 range.
The water is clear and I have no other issues, but I like the idea of adding Borates if it will help stabilize the PH level.
My concern is will the high level of acid (while adding borax) have any possible affect on the surface of the pool. Again it is sculpted cement that is stained for the final rock look.
