Would you use any of these chemicals if they were given to you free?

These were left by the previous homeowner. Since I moved in 3 months ago, I bought all my own chemicals because I wanted to be sure of the quality and applicability. Thanks to this forum, I've learned how to maintain my pool and it's in a comfortable spot now. The only problem I continuously have is elevated pH, for which I'm adding muriatic acid every week. I'm left to finally decide what to do with these chemicals:

- ProTeam Supreme Enhancer (sodium tetraborate pentahydrate 99.5%)
- Jack's Magic Magenta Stuff
- Pool Perfect + Phosfree
- Pool Time Super Water Clarifier

The ProTeam Supreme adds borates to the pool. I would get Borates Test Strips and see what the borate level is in your water since it effects your pH and TA.

Jack's Magic is a sequestrant used in metals treatments...

Phosfree only if you have a major phosphate problem...
