Hello, thanks for having me! I have learned a ton from this website, and have saved a lot of money at the pool stores as well. Surprisingly none of them have ever heard of BBB method I just got my TA down from about 250 to 100 using the MA and aeration method. My ph however is sitting at 7.3. Using the pool calculator it says to add 36oz of borax to raise the ph. down in the borate box it is telling me to add roughly 8 boxes of borax (go go mule) I had to resist saying it was to clean the blood upas well as to add about 2 gallons of MA to offset the ph rise.Originally Posted by Hotrod30
My question is: Is it possible just to use borax and MA combo as directed to get my borate level up to 50ppm? or do I have to raise the ph up first with aeration, then start the borax/ma combo? Also how much MA is too much to add at one time to a 10k gallon plaster pool? dude at the poolstore said only 24oz or so every 4 hours, but that would take forever if adding 2gallons. Thanks for any help in advance.
