    8 boxes of borax and 2 gallons and change of acid

    Is it a problem if I take it from 0 to 24 ppm then do the test next weekend? Only have 8 boxes of borax, and I bought out the two walmarts near me.

    That's how I did mine, two separate doses.

    So you want to add borates to your pool--Why and How

    Ok all done. 8 boxes of borax and 2 gallons and change Of acid. Should I test now for PH and TA and off they are off adjust accordingly? Or wait till tomorrow? Test strips will be here the or wed. Never been real sure of my pool volume so this will help since borates start at 0 ppm.

    You can test the PH and TA now. Borates will be mixed in a few days.
