    quick question

    Gents,

    I've got CH reading of 300+, in a SWG 13K gallon pool

    A. Do I need to worry about it?
    B. If so, how to reduce?

    Thx in advance

    Re: quick question

    300 is no big deal. What's with 300+? Are you using test strips?

    Unless you live near San Diego or Phoenix where reverse osmosis is available, your only solution is to partially drain and refill. And then rebalance everything, including salt.

    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.

    No test strips, I'm using the TF test kit, sorry I couldn't get an EXACT reading, but know it's over 300.

    Water is a fresh fill

    Well water is used to displace evaporation and well water is hard.
