I would like to bring my borate to 50ppm as desribed earlier. Since I already added some borax to get my PH and TA inline, should I include that amount in my overall calculation to reach the 50ppm level? I would think so, but don't want to screw it up. As an FYI my current levels are:
Do I need to get a test kit to measure borates before starting the process or is the measurement by weight good enough to establish the 50ppm level? If I need a test kit can someone recommend the best (accurate) kit?
Also, should I add any calcium cloride to bring the hardness level up to atleast 200? I am running a SWCG with a vinyl pool.
Thanks in advance for your helpful suggestions.
