This is probably going to be ugly (the negative responses) but I am still pretty new to maintaining a pool.
This is the results from a local pool store sample. I will just present it just as it reads on the print out:
Keep in mind, this is an indoor, fiberglass pool.
Saturation index: 0.6
Total Hardness: 218
I realize the PH is a little high (regular issue with my pool). I also now realize the TA is pretty darn high... last sample I took in was around 80 and they recommended I increase it dramatically... I added about half of what they recommend and got this high.
I think its funny they call Borate, Optimizer as that is what they sell. I plan to do the borax deal but am considering draining the pool for a refinish and keep putting it off until I finally make a decision and get going.
So what should I change...
