  1. Can anyone provide the calculations to compensate for the Boron?
  2. Thanks for the link exchemist, However I know what Boron is used for. I just don't know if the Boron levels affects the amount of Hydrochloric Acid I require.
  3. Hi All, One of the pH adjustment programs I use takes the amount of Boron in the water into account. I'm not sure it matters - So I'd like to know if the Boron concentration in pool water affects the amount of Hydrochloric Acid required. If so, how? Is there a formula I can use to adjust for the amount of Boron? Thanks in advance, Buddy.
  4. I, too, suspect that it's iron stains. The stains sometimes appear at the spot where I pour the salt into the pools. The salt I use is highly refined pool salt - ultra-fine pure white crystalline salt. However I don't think they remove all the contaminants, too costly. Here's what Fishel Pools says about pool salt: I think you're right about the chelation, here's what I found at PubMed: Amazing stuff, hey?
  5. Hi All, I've been using ascorbic acid to remove salt stains for a while, but it always amazes me that it's immediate - I've attached photo's of before and after - ~3 minutes apart. What I'd like to know is why? What happens? Thanks in advance, Buddy.
  6. Hi All, If I add Hydrochloric Acid to a pool, will the calcium hardness be lowered? If so, by how much - is there a formula I can use to calculate the final value? Thanks in advance.
  7. I know this is an ooooold post, but why shouldn't one add all the required acid at once?
