jaredthomas27 Posted January 31 Report Share Posted January 31 Good afternoon all. Have a question I am hoping to get clarification on please. I have 50 ppm of borates in my water via boric acid. Will that slow or stop my ability to lower my pH with muriatic acid? My TA got down to 48 (testing with K2106 drop test) accounting for the borate correction factor in the book and my pH is still hovering around 7.9-8.0 I have bumped my TA up to 88 with baking soda to give myself room to add more acid but I just added .5oz of acid and my pH remained unmoved. Could that be because of the borates? I am measuring pH with a calibrated Apera electric meter my wife uses for work for exact precision. I am running the 3 step Bromine. Thanks in advance!
