I added borate to my pool back in April. Overshot my goal slightly and hit 50ppm. Not too high based on what I've read, so I was thinking I'll just wait for it to drop due to splash out, evaporation, etc. However, I still get a reading of 50 ppm. I will admit I find the borate strip test hard to read reliably, but am pretty sure I'm reading it correctly. By comparison my CYA reading have dropped over the same time from 75ppm to 60ppm. Am I missing something here?
