How long does it take for an addition of Calcium Chloride to fully dissolve and give an accurate reading on your new level?
We have been getting huge rainstorms here is south Fla and I have been draining the pool a lot. My test this morning showed my CH at 220. I have done my calculations for my gallons, but never really had to double check them. According to pool calculator, to bring my CH from 220 to 250, I needed to add 54 oz by weight of CH. I did at around 10:00 AM (I actually weighed it on a digital scale).
At 12:30 I checked the level again and it was only at 230? Does it take a while to raise to level, or are my gallons incorrect?
FC: 6 (turned chlorinator down, still trying to dial it in)
PH: 7.4 (**it was 7.8 two days ago. Added 4 oz MA based on pool calc to bring to 7.5, but it dropped it to 7.4 instead)**
CH: 220 (added 54 oz by weight **actually weighed it on a scale** (at 12:30 PM it was at 230)
I think my gallons are a bit off, any suggestions?
