    Two quick questions about borates

    i switched to the BBB method with my pool and its incredibly more simple to maintain my water. which is great. no more 3" tablets is great news...

    I have two quick questions about borates:
    1) my TA is between 90 and 100, lets call it 95 - is this too high to start a borate regimen? I saw that the suggested range was around 80 for BBB method
    2) Is there any reason to wait since i just refilled? my understanding would say do it asap since it helps prevent/fight algae but...just asking

    Chem as of today: FC: 4.5, cc: 0.2, TA: 95 CYA:40, pH:7.3, Calc: 80 (Taylormodel2006)
    16x32 in-ground vinyl liner, 17,500 gallons, sand filter, 2 outlets, BBB method, 8+ hours of daily sun, hayward super pump
