It's been quite a while since I had to ask any questions but it seems I have a hideous calcium problem. Long story short... I let "others" tend to the pool. I'm in the process of refilling after draining out 3/4 of the pool so I don't have a CYA reading as I'll just have to add it in when the pool is filled enough to start the pump again.
My pre-drain Numbers were...
ch-450.. I know
The pool wouldn't hold chlorine and I didn't realise there was scaling. It's bad scaling too. So prowling threw the forums I've figured I'll drain the pool to lower hardness. It's filling now, about 1/2 inch to go before I can start the pump. I took readings and here are the new water #'s
I haven't added anything yet but I know I need to get and keep the PH down, but how far??
I will add CYA to 30ppm
I will shock to 15ppm using clorox bleach.
Is this correct??
The tap water measures CH- 90.. is the scaling in the pool leaching already?
and any idea how long or fast this will be??
Thank you so very much
