    Help-Adding Calcium Increaser for my pool

    i was told i needed to add about 25lbs of calcium hardner to my pool this week and to do so over the span of a week about 5lbs a day. Do i really have to mix it with water in a bucket or can i dispense it directly around the perimeter of my pool? i dont feel comfortable mixing it with water

    thanks
    Mike

    Does this pool have a vinyl liner? If so, you don't need Calcium. There's no plaster to etch.

    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!
