Plan to try the borates this weekend, and would like to confirm my calculations before starting.
Here are my current levels:
I plan to raise borates to 30 this evening and up to 50 tomorrow. For my 8,000 gallon pool I have calculated (using Pool Calculator) that I need to add:
283 oz. of 20 Mule Team Borax
135 oz. of 31.45% Muriatic acid
Can someone confirm (or refute) these calculations based on my current TA reading of 70 and my borderline pH of 7.2 which does not want to move. Thanks all.
Also, does 20 degrees baume guarantee that the muriatic acid is 31.45%? (forget that question, just figured it out.)
