We have hard water in our area and I have been told by our PB that we should expect to drain our pool every 3 to 4 years to keep the calcium under control.
As I am considering using a stone on the raised bond beam -- calcium build-up concerns me greatly. I love the look, but don't want to buy a maintenance headache.
Will a Salt pool 'soften' the water / lower the calcium in the water? If so -- how does this work -- does the calcium in the water precipitate out? How low will the SWG get the CH?
