So, my TA is a little high, not to much I'd like it lower but its not to the point where I need to mess with it, and PH is honestly perfect. At this point I'm just trying to get my water crystal clear and silky. So going to start fussing with the borates and see what I can do. I know that if you add Borax you have to add 31.45% muriatic acid to compensate for the pH increase. That is all fine and good, but if I used Boric Acid I wouldn't have to add any muriatic acid at all? Is that understanding correct?
If so where can I get Boric Acid cheap? I need 7 and a half gallons. -- Or is a lot cheaper just to use the Muriatic Acid and Borax even though you risk the pH changing.
