Getting ready for borates:
Yesterday I lowered my TA to 80 with MA. Resultingly, my pH dropped to ~6.8. In the sticky it said to get the pH to ~7.5. I was wondering why you can't just go ahead and start adding borax. It seems to me that borax would raise the pH anyway and would just mean I'd use less MA to balance the borax.
