Hello all. Completed the borate add this weekend. Just tested (after 48hrs) and levels seem to be right on at 50ppm....the ph however is through the roof 8.5 and TA up to 130. So now I'll start to lower both with acid. Should I take it easy and try to step the ph down with smaller doses of acid? Anyone else end up with high ph/TA after adding borax and muriatic acid? Thanks for all the great info on this site, new here but a 13 yr vet pool ownership!
