I've read the positives of borates and I want to add them but I am so afraid lol. Here's why.
Here are my results from a few moments ago.
CYA 40 took forever
I read I need my TA between 60-80 to start adding borates with muriatic acid and borax.
I have a therapy spa jet going and aerating.
Can you long time TFP people help me out.
My tap water TA was high obviously I've not added anything to increase TA.
I have added 18 oz of muriatic acid since pool build and fill to control pH.
I ordered borate test strips they will be here Thursday.
I need tips on lowering TA and what level is ok to start adding borates.
I do not want to drop my pH to low. I'm unsure the safe low level.
What is the swimming rule during this process also.
Another thing I see run pump while adding muriatic acid but a pool care video I watched said leave pump off 3-4 hours after adding muriatic acid.
I'm so confused.
Lots of questions I know but I wanna do this right!!!!!
