    How much CH until I stop using Cal Hypo?

    It's been a couple of weeks now since I've converted to the trouble free method with bleach instead of pucks/cal hypo but I still have a big bucket of cal hypo left in the shed. My CH is around 350. I figured I would just finish it up and then stick only to BBB. Is 350 too high to continue using cal hypo? What would you guys say is the upper threshold? Thanks!

    You're there already. Just make sure the bucket is sealed up tight and save it for opening next season. You'll no doubt lower the water level when you winterize, right? When you refill next spring, your CH will be lower and you can use it then.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Yup, that's correct. Thanks.
