    I didn't see that addressed in the how to in this thread: so-you-want-to-add-borates-to-your-pool-why-and-how-t4921.html But probably not safe. The pH may be swinging all over the place and the water could get cloudy. Tough on skin and eyes.

    If you mean using Borax to raise pH, that's fine; just give it half an hour to mix first.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
