I am looking to add borate to my pool and after reading this thread I think my pool is ready for it. Could someone just take a look at my test results and tell me if they see anything I should adjust before moving forward.
Free Chlorine - 3.13 ppm
Total Chlorine - 3.73 ppm
Combined Chlorine - 0.6 ppm
pH - 7.3
Hardness - 185 ppm
Alkalinity (w/stabilizer correction) - 99 ppm
Cyanuric Acid - 58 ppm
Copper - 0.2 ppm
Iron - 0.1 ppm
Borate - 0 ppm
Phosphate - 1000 ppb
Total Dissolved Solids - 1000 ppm
I am planning on shocking tonight and picking up the borate tomorrow. My pool is 24k gallons. Also, I am thinking adding some salt to get the pool to about 1000 ppm. Should I do that before or after the borate? Or just skip all together?
