I followed the directions for adding borates. I did 1/2 so far 24lbs and added 24lbs of borax and 189 oz of muriatic acid. But the test stips the pools store sold me do not test for borates just bromine. Is the pool safe to swim in today since I can't test for them? I am getting ready to retest the pool for fc, ph, ta etc. It is to late to go back to the store as we are having a pool part today with friends and family today. Hate to have a pool party without the pool.
