Posted a couple of weeks ago about going ahead w/ borate (borax) addition
Added enough per pool math to bring borates to 50ppm (although I have yet to test for specific levels)
Well, a few days post addition I have noticed that my chlorine demand has dropped pretty dramatically.
Enough so that I had to test a couple of times to be sure I wasn't doing something wrong.
I was typically having to add around 90oz of 8.25% per day and it has now dropped to around 30oz per day.
That is with super high heat and sunny days here too.
The first day I noticed it was after a day FULL of people and even a dog or 2 jumping in randomly from time to time.
I don't know if something else is contributing to the lower chlorine demand, as it was steady for weeks leading up to adding the borax.
I also noticed that the water is exponentially easier on my eyes after the addition.
Super happy to have done it.
