Hi, I've finally re-opened my pool after leaving it covered for a couple of years. Has a lovely green tint to it plus some disappointing numbers:
I forgot that pH needs to be increased first, so I shocked it yesterday which unfortunately did nothing.
After some reading I've found that the pH needs to come up first and foremost, and alkalinity a little bit. I was looking to get 12-15 boxes of 20 Mule Team Borax to put in there, but the stuff seems way more expensive than it used to be (could've sworn I got it for like $4 or $5 a box).
Does anyone know of a place that's currently a good source of borax at a good price?
