Thanks to a really warm week, we're just about ready for the first dip in our recently rehabbed pool. Did an OCLT last night/this morning and it was < .5 - yay! pH was perfect and TA is still higher than desired, so I'm going to slowly work that down over the summer with aeration and muriatic acid. The first round of MA just went in today and dropped pH right down to where I targeted.
This evening's test:
I think rather than burn pump time to aerate and get that pH back up, I'd like to go ahead and add-in the right amount of borax - is there ANY reason not to from a chemical standpoint? I do have two large dogs that will be swimming it frequently, but I've done the homework on that already and understand the risks.
Still loving how EASY TFPC is... I was expecting a lot more work as a first-time pool owner!
