I am wanting to add borax to the pool. Started out today with:
I am using a Taylor K-2006
The PBs service guy has been out twice and will be out again on Tuesday. I'm assuming he is going to do something about the CYA then. I was going to add it but then thought that they are supposed to so I am waiting. Anyway, I added acid to bring pH down to 7.0. This brought my TA down to 80. I am running the fountains, have the returns pointed up and all that.
My question is: do I really have to aerate to get pH up before adding the borax? It is just going to raise it anyway which is the reason for adding acid with it. So why not add the borax with the pH low and just add less acid so I end up where I want? Just thought I would check and see if that was kosher or not.
