Borax can reduce the algal growth in the pool water
and give a shiny and sparkling look to the pool water. Mainly it can be used
when there is a drop in the pH of the pool water. Borax is added to the pool
water to raise the pH of the water to the desired level. For this purpose, you
will need a kit for testing the pH of water, borax chemical, and hand safety
gloves. When you check the water of your pool has the pH in the range of
acidity, it is needed to raise the pH of the water. Usually, 7.4-7.6 pH is
considered safe and ideal for the pool water. This level of pH can be
maintained by addition of the borax to the water.
To increase 0.5 pH of the pool, 20 ounces of borax
is needed for 5,000 gallons of water. This amount of the borax can be added to your pool with the help of the pool pump for at least three days. After three
days the pH of the water should be check, and it must be in the ideal range
such as 7.4-7.6. If the desired pH is not yet maintained, extra borax can be
added to raise the pH of your pool water. In case the pH is higher than the
recommended ideal level, there is no need to worry as the pH goes down
naturally in a few days without treating the pool water with other chemicals.
