After five weeks of work to move my TA down and add borates, I believe I've settled into my groove:
BOR 50 (using strips, color a little less than 50)
I made the last adjustment yesterday, 25# of Borax, 1.5 gall acid, and 45# CaCl to hit these numbers.
I believe I'm done - and will now enter maintenance mode, keeping the pH between 7.6 and 7.8.
Am I missing anything? Other suggestions?
The stickies and forum feedback is great. Thanks for all the tips on TFP!
