I apologize if this has been touched upon before, but the 16+ pages post on Borates is a tad long
I am using Proteam's Supreme (they did not have the acid neutral PLUS version) and got my pool all set last year, right after it was build.
In order to keep my optimizer level I have to add a good 1-2 pints per week and also twice had to add 10 lbs just to keep my Borate levels steady.
TA and PH also require a lot of adjusting, we have strong winds and full sun exposure - would you consider this quantity of Borates consumption "normal"? I had thought this is more-or-less a one-time application.
