I'm going to use the Grocery store Borax/acid method as explained here:
I have 2 questions:
1) I have a cartridge filter - Jandy Cartridge Filter CV340. Would it be better for me to remove the cartridges during this process so they don't get clogged up with the borax powder and then re-install after say 48hrs or so?
2) On the testing part….the above link says to be sure to get some some testing strips. I'm currently using the TF-100 test kit so does Leslies pools, Warehouse Pools or some other local pool supply carry the appropriate strips? What is the name of the reliable strips I'm looking for? Or is there a better way to test for borates?
3) And…for a 10k SWG pool I'm still looking for 50ppm in borate testing…right?
