    What are symptons of high CH?

    What are the symptoms of very high CH? If you didn't have a test kit, how does it present itself?

    You'll also have water spots on glasses out of the dishwasher, white crust on faucets and showerheads, maybe a ring around your toilet bowl, lots of white film on shower tiles. These all indicate hard water, and if that's what you're using to fill the pool, your pool will have high CH.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
