    Poolmath and Borax Box Size

    It's been quite a while (couple of years?) since the size of the 20 Mule Team borax boxes changed from 76 ounces to 65 ounces yet Poolmath has not been revised accordingly. When holding your mouse cursor over the weight of the borax, Poolmath still reports how many 76 ounce boxes are needed. This may confuse new users and should be corrected. If 76 ounce boxes are still available in some markets then maybe a pulldown menu with the box sizes (similar to the chlorine jug size) would be helpful.

    Thank you SO much for bringing this up! I HATE when they sell a smaller amount for the same amount of money! I would MUCH rather it cost a little more!

    I will get with our IT guy!

    Re: Poolmath and Borax Box Size

    Just used Poolmath and noticed that it still shows 76 ounce box size for 20 Mule Team Borax. In my area, that size box hasn't been around for the last couple of years. I'm assuming that the change to 65 ounce boxes is country-wide. Can Poolmath be changed to reflect the new 65 ounce box size?

    It has been fixed the app as seen here: Pool Math

    The web site one was to upgraded but guess it did not happen. They will look at it again when the busy season is over.
