I am using the Liquidator this year, but considering going back to SWG for next season. My question pertains to Borax. As LQ users know, the tank tends to collect precipitate flakes of whitish "salts." This year I decided to add 50 ppm borates to my pool in the form of Borax, buffered with muriatic acid. Interestingly, when I did that, all that precipitate in my LQ vanished. And I haven't had to clean any buildup off the OUT float because there isn't any! I used to use Intex SWG for several years and usually had to replace the cell every year. Once a week I would have to de-lime the cell in a 1:5 mix of muriatic acid and water. And remember, I wasn't using any borates those seasons. So now, seeing the absence of buildup in my LQ due to the borates, I can't help but wonder if 50 ppm berated would also prevent buildup on a SWG cell, thus greatly prolonging cell life. Any thoughts?
