    I'm thinking about adding boric acid for 30K Gal. Pool math says 72 Lbs (1145 oz)

    We recently remodeled our pool and I've been reading about the benefits of borates. Just want to make sure my math is correct before I dump in 72 Lbs of boric. 72 Lbs sound like a lot but I guess it's a larger than average pool.

    What is your TA currently?
    Realize that borates are completely optional.

    72 pound must be about right because my pool needs about 44 pounds.

    We have really hard water but I've managed to get TA down to 80 ppm
