    How long does calhypo take to dissolve?

    My pool has chosen this year to torture me. I added ~3lbs of calhypo a week ago. This gave a higher chlorine level for a day and I hope a boost in my CH level since it's been low. I went to vacuum some leaves off the bottom with my water hose vacuum (don't know the name) and I get huge clouds and white milky water. How long does it take to dissolve?

    It's time to resurface. I'm south of Houston, any recommendations for a resurfacer are appreciated.

    FC .5 low but I generally put my chlorine in at dusk and I forgot last night.

    I dontknow, I have never used it, but it is important not to let it sit on the nottom. Either dissolve itinerary a bucket first or brush it until it dissolves.
