I bought this MELT brand calcium chloride product to bring up my CH awhile back (https://www.walmart.com/ip/Snow-Joe-...hod=p13n#about) and noticed it gave the pool water a funny smell that wasn't there before. With all the rain we've gotten I had to add some more, and I'm running low on the original stuff I bought. Before buying some more of the same stuff to have on hand, I wanted to know if any smell from added calcium chloride is normal? I can smell it in the pool, and on our swim clothes/towels once we are out. No one else in my family notices or comments on it, but it bothers me.
Thanks for your help!
Salt= 3150 (per SWG reading. Probably lower.)
PS: CH is a focus of mine because I have noticed some etching and pitting due to my CH not rising as quickly as anticipated over the summer and the CSI being too low as a result (at least that's my assumption.) I finally brought the CH up to 350 to help the CSI but more rain diluted it, so that's why I need to look into buying some more calcium.
