Can it be this easy!!?? My pool says so!!! We have been up and running since a bit before July.
I have been following the BBB method since day one. Pool has always looked amazing! Thanks to trouble free pool and all the wonderful members here.
I had to post this picture up because I added my borates 2 days ago and the pool looks amazing! Can you tell I'm excited!
Well, I got the muriatic acid in, got the borates in via 3 1/2 boxes of borax. The calculator says 3.9 boxes and that is a bit closer to what I added but I did cut it shy because I only had enough money in my budget to get the one concentrated jug of acid. It may have been a little less than one gallon though, i think it said 98 oz of 31.45% so my plan was less borax, let everything settle down and then adjust accordingly. Well, the borate test strips managed to not get in the bag at checkout... at least I didnt pay for them either. So until I can make it back to the store I cant check the borates. I am not too concerned about that for right now since I followed what the calculator said.
I assumed I was in the clear because of my test results, what do you all think? These are post borate addition results
Borates: ?? (but my water rocks!!!)
I add about 1 cup or less of 10% bleach a day (in the evening) to maintain the 5+ FC. I have to admit that I have never done an over night loss test.
Thanks again to eveyone!
