Thread: My CH level was 80 and was told I needed to raise it

  1. #1

    My CH level was 80 and was told I needed to raise it

    Before I found this site, I had my water sampled at Leslies Pool. I have an Intex 16 x 48. My CH level was 80 and was told I needed to raise it (thereby, purchasing a $20 bucket of stuff). After reading this site, I have not used this. Am I correct that I shouldn't worry about this low reading?

    Correct. There is no need to add CH to a vinyl liner pool.

    I can send some over, I have the opposite problem! Hopefully, they will let you return it!

    Surely they will since I have my receipt....I really need to get a better test kit (as noted on this site)...
