    It's been a month since I added borates.....


    I thought I'd post an update on my pool. I had decided about a month ago to add the borax. Followed the directions posted on the site and had no issues. I noticed the water is crystal clear with a capital "C" and the pH is stable as a rock. I have a water feature and have had issues with pH rise. It was so bad I'd use about a gallon of muriatic acid every 2 weeks. I think I have added a quart in the last month so I'm really happy about that. The water feels and looks great and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    15,500 gal, inground gunite pool with 7 ft spa, 2 speed pump 2hp/.33hp, 3/4 hp booster pump, Intermatic P1353 timer, AutoPilot SC-48, Sand filter with ZeoBest, Heater, that I never use . . .
