I have been slowly adding borates to my SWG and will continue this weekend. Right now at 10 ppm.
My latest readings have been pretty consistent. pH is very stable.
Although today I noticed my CC level (0.5 ppm) I did a search here and figured this is not a biggy right now.
Can I continue my Borate adventure?
Pool is sparkling clear and that nasty black stain on my pool stairs has been slowly disappearing (actually rubs off quite easily).
I run my pump 24/7 (until I can get an electrician to wire my P4 properly). SWG percentage is 10%. I can bump it to 15% but there is no level to set in between and when I do set at 15% my FC jumps higher than the CYA/Chlorine recommend. So I'm in that wierd zone I guess.
FC is 5.5 > Pool math recommends 1L of bleach. So have added that and should be good.
Pool temp is a crisp 74F (which is were I like it). Haven't turned the heater on all summer.
Thank you all and I am on to my Borate adventure!
