I want to add borax to about 50 ppm for the "feel" of the "softer" water. In reading in the pool school, borax raises PH - is this ongoing or just at first?
I also want to add salt to about 2000 ppm - I have read where with SWGs some must routinely add acid to combat high PH - is this because of the salt or the SWG?
I have also learned that the salt does not dissipate or get lost in backwashing and is lost only through splash out - is the same true of borax?
Thank you in advance.
