First I would like to thank you all, this forum has helped me so much and I appreciate all your insight.
I've had my house for almost a year and when I bought it the pool water was gross, so I assume they emptied and refilled the pool.
I was thinking about draining my pool and repairing a cover on the bottom that is cracked and checking all pop ups and clean the bottom of pool that has some scaling.
The calcium levels have always been extremely high, but the water in Vegas has a lot of calcium. I saw another poster, granny geek, had posted this regarding another post:
One can always use a calcium trap in line on the hose feeding the drip/sprinkler/etc., systems.
It got me thinking, can I use a calcium trap on end of hose when I refill the pool to cut down on the calcium?
I've also read people saying you shouldn't drain pool and refill, so I'm wondering if it's bad to drain? ( I have a plaster pool)
Thanks for all your help.
