BORATES MAKE IT BETTER
Keeping pool water pH from fluctuating (buffering) is a vital task — it ensures the water in the pool remains comfortable for bathers and doesn’t attack the vessel that contains it. Carbonates have been used for this purpose in the pool industry for many years. Borates, less common than carbonates, perform a similar buffering function.
Beyond the mission of keeping pH in its target range and therefore preventing scale and corrosion, borate products are used as algaestats (meaning they prevent algae, as opposed to killing it like an algaecide). They stop algae by limiting the supply of its chief nutrient, carbon dioxide.
EASE OF USE
Borate additives are atypical of many pool chemicals in that they are not consumed over time. Once dissolved in water, the only way they exit the pool is by way of splash out and backwashing.
THE FEEL FACTOR
For pool service techs, borate is a mainly a tool for pH and algae control, but the benefit most popular with homeowners is how it makes the water look and feel.
