I have a silly question?

I bought a 4# box of Borax and only need according to the calculator 16oz by weight will raise my PH by what I supposedly need to bring it to 7.5.

Question is how do I measure 16oz by weight? I know 16oz is a pound so is that how I figure it out or do I add it by the cup full?
Most dry pool chems are measured by weight. An inexpensive kitchen scale is a good investment for your pool equipment.
give the pool a GOOD brushing to mix everything, make sure it's all dissolved, then wait about an hour or so.
