    Question about the pool calculator.

    When you use the Effects of adding chemicals part of the calculator, is that amount in weight or volume? I see at the top the numbers are different when you are putting in your now and goal.

    Hopefully this make sense.

    Thanks.

    In the Effects of adding chemicals section measurements are by volume for liquids and by weight for solids and gasses. So bleach, muriatic acid, and liquid stabilizer are by volume and everything else is by weight.
