Just joined the borax club. How long after adding the borax and MA until you can get back into the pool?

As soon as everything is thoroughly mixed and you're sure pH is in range :goodjob:

Sweet.. I have a few Ph monitors from having a couple salt water reef tanks. I have one sitting in the Skimmer box and Ph is currently 7.48 without any aeration.

Will you be interested in selling one?

Thanks.

Re: So you want to add borates to your pool--Why and How

This is the one I have in my Skimmer. Its not waterproof so you can not leave it in the pool. I get roughly 7.5 on the test strip so its pretty accurate. I just calibrated it to make sure. Seems nothing in the pool throws off the reading either. I use ph controllers on my tanks that turn on/off co2 when its not needed.
