    I should have given this info: Source water is municipal with a ph of 7.8, TA of 90 that's all I have tested so far.. FC is 0 and so is CYA of course. I have some CYA should I go ahead and put some in skimmer. I want to use bleach as my chlorine product.

    Good work! Don't skip adding borax to your hot tub. Somehow I missed it for a year, even though I've had it in my pool for years. Added it last weekend and it makes it even better!

    I know I read somewhere how to add borax and acid to maintain a balance. I will search again for that post. Thanks for reminder!!!
