I have been contemplating of adding Borates to my pool with all the positive feedback about easier on the eyes, better feeling on the skin, less chance of algae, etc. But I have also noticed numerous claims of the same benefits with those that have their salt levels up for a SWG.
I do not have a SWG nor plan to get one anytime soon. The adding of salt would only be for the side benefits. We have the negatives on both sides of possible corrosion for salt and potential health hazards for dogs with borates ( I do have a small dog and as of last summer he did not consume that much pool water).
Was wondering if others would mind weighing in on which would be better for my pool. The reason for wanting to explore both is mostly for the benefits of easier on the eyes/skin for my small children.
