    Intelichem and borates

    Not sure what problems people have with the outdoors. Once I figured out the ORP number to actual chlorine sweet spot it's been on autopilot and has been spot on. I know of the CYA issues that's why I was curious about the borates.. guess I'll be the test subject..

    Intelichem and borates

    I've looked, and am unable to find info on this. I'm ready to add the borates to the pool but I'm unable to determine if this will cause my ORP probe to malfunction or read incorrectly. Please advise.

    Been following the TFP app, slowly I've been doing what it says even though I'm not sure why it wants what it wants. Pool store says FC 3.1 PH 7.7 ALK 92 Calcium 215 CYA 32.
