    Boraxo is mostly borax, mixed with soap, so treat it like soap in the water. You'll need more chlorine than usual, and you might want to go ahead and shock to speed it along.

    thanks so much John T I will do that. should run the filter 24/7 for now? At least I will be clean when I swim now

    I have a party next Saturday so I am hoping I can get this cleared up by than.

    My policy is to filter 24/7 whenever I have a hint things aren't quite right in the pool, so I'd recommend it.
