Now that our pool is sparkling clean and the chemicals are under control, I'm thinking of adding salt and/or borates to get that silky feeling (i.e. eliminate that dried skin feeling when we get out). I've read many threads and it seems that the consensus is that there is no consensus- that it's a matter of choice/personal preference. Still, I have a couple questions:
1- Do you think salt at 2000 ppm (not planning on a SWG at this time) will affect the natural rocks around the pool?
2- Does salt or borates make the water silkier? Does adding salt and borates make the water twice as silky? (I know this is a subjective question, but I'm fine with subjective answers).
Here's our pool-
(I'm not so concerned about rising pH, eye irritation nor extra sparkly water- we're not having any issues there.)
