    Borax is best added by pre-dissolving it in a bucket of water and then pouring that slowly in front of a return.

    Your pH of 7.2 looks fine. Why do you want to increase it?

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
