Just moved into house with pool and pool company. No longer have pool company and converting pool to BBB. Almost there, still some issues.
I tested CH and I could not getting water to turn red to even start. My drops are old because my last pool was a vinyl pool and I didn't check CH that often.
I went to pool store to buy new CH drops and had store test water, which resulted in 550. The store tested it twice because it was so high. I was told best thing to do is add new water/refill. I was also told city water had high levels of minerals. I asked if calcium was high in city water how would refilling help?
I came home tested city tap water it was 130. Pool has a automatic water fill.
Not sure how the level raised up so high to begin with?
Should I invest in water softner?
Should I try to refill some of the water?
Should I just wait and keep checking CH to see what happens?
Pool is clear, but some scaling is occurring, guest are noting hair feeling different.
Thank you everybody who has been helping me convert my pool to BBB, and answering all of my questions.
