I'm just starting up using borates (to control pH instead of TA).
But if the borate level is basically the amount of Borax in the water, and you also use Borax to raise pH, how do you stay at a desired borate level yet still have the ability to raise pH? (If, say, it's too low for just aeration).
And does Baking Soda effect borate levels?
How do you leave borate levels alone yet increase pH and TA?
