Today went swimming with some friends along with a BBQ - it was great! Pool was sparkling and so clean, thanks to adopting TFP methods and that SLAM I've recently completed. Thank YOU, TFPF, for just being here!!!
Now my next question... when I got out of the pool my skin became pretty dry. Not a major complaint, more like a nuisance, and was wondering if there's something I could do to soften the water so my skin feels better when I leave the pool?
I've heard of adding salt, but my pool is not a SWG and I'm worried about corrosion of the plumbing system over time. I've also heard of Borax, and I actually have some on hand (along with baking soda and bleach to round up the BBB). But I'm a little skeptical that Borates would help the water feel, and hesitant to add more chemicals in a pool that I've already gotten sparkling over the weekend...
What are the pro and cons of each?
