    Boric acid powder (again)

    Last time I added boric acid I struggled with the powdered variety. It just floated on top and was a PITA to get mixed in.

    This time I knew better and ordered the granular, but Duda Diesel shipped powder anyway

    I mixed it with water in a 5 gallon bucket before adding it to the pool and it worked fine. Crisis averted

    Good to know. At least it doesn't cake up like powdered CYA does.
