First this is a great site! Thanks for all the help, advice and such.
Started my season going with the 20 Mule team and acid, got my Borates up to 50. Season has wound down and my borates measured around 30. Time to bring them back up. I was going to use the 20 Mule team again, but getting the supply from Wally World was a PITA the last time.
I decided to do the Boric Acid direct route. Ordered 25 lbs (needed 16 for my pool) from Duda Diesel (Boric Acid, 25 lb - FREE SHIPPING • Granular Form / Tech Grade 99.9+%).
The Boric Acid was about $54 for 25 lbs delivered. Added 16 lbs. It took a whole 15 minutes to complete the job. Measured out a pound at a time and poured it into the pool. Dissolved pretty quick and the borate level read about 50 according to the strips.
Overall I was satisfied with how using boric acid worked out. Quick and Easy.
