I am ready to take the plunge, and add borates to my pool. I have read the step by step instructions several times and understand all of the chemical levels that I need to achieve prior to beginning.
My only question As it is now mid August, and we are closer to the end of our season than the beginning, is there any advantage of waiting until spring in order to get full advantage, or should I just proceed now?
I did mine just a couple weeks ago because my granddaughter was coming to visit. No regrets. It's beautiful. And -- while I know borates are no substitute for proper sanitation and maintenance -- I am having fewer problems with algae growing underneath the steps where it's hard to clean. Well worth it for me.
