Someone had mentioned that if you start using Borates, not to let your dog drink out of the pool - I know in very heavy doses, borates are used as a "green" insecticide for ants (sugar mixed w/borax), but at the low 50ppm doses people use in pools, is that really an issue for animals?
Reason I'm asking is our dog thinks nothing of just walking up to the pool to get a drink. Some have said this is easy-enough to train them not to do...
1) Is it really that important, and
2) If so, what's the easy way to train the dog to not drink from the pool...
I will be adding Borates in a week or so.
