Is this a bulk, cheaper alternative to "Borax 20 mule team"?
I was pondering going the borate route for my pool this year and I would need about 100 pound of it and 6 gallons of MA.
At $0.60/pound for the Borate that seems like a good deal.

Have you looked into Boric Acid? A lot more pH-neutral than Borax, doesn't require tons of MA to keep pH in range. Most people here order it from Duda Diesel.
