I added salt about a month ago and really like the silky feel of the water. Can I add borates to the water even though I added salt? I am considering borates because I have turned into a real water snob. I just feel like my pool could sparkle a bit more. I try to keep the FC at the low end of recommended because it feels so drying to my skin after I get out and dry off. Because of this (maybe) the water just looks dull.
It sounds like putting in borates is basically the same as the process of lowering TA. Also, I am not really satisfied with how fast my pH keep raising. Does it make sense to go throughout the lowering TA process and adding borates at the same time. Is this killing two birds with one stone. Here are my numbers today.
In case it matters, I'm needing to add about 144 oz of bleach daily.
