Using Borax and Baking Soda in a Pool

Can I use just borax and baking soda in an above ground pool? My boyfriend is allergic to chlorine bleach. We would like to get the pool in the back yard running, but he doesn't want to pay for the expensive baqucil. We would like to use household items to keep the pool balanced. I'm just trying to find a way where we can avoid using chlorine.

You would need some kind of ionizing pool cleaning system if you don't want to use chemicals.

Try ozone instead of chlorine. Good luck. Lynn
