Thread: Home Depot calcium chloride

    Home Depot calcium chloride


    I need to increase calcium hardness. I see "C-Force 50 lb. Calcium Chloride Flakes" from HD at $17.97: ... reId=10051

    Can this be used to increase calcium hardness for my pool?

    Yes, that is just fine (if they actually have it in stock). Use calcium chloride dihydrate in the Pool Calculator when calculating.

    Thanks for your quick response.

    It's out of stock near my place but I'm fortunate to find it in stock in a store 10 miles away. Not bad

    Re: Home Depot calcium chloride

    What is the CH level of your pool and what type of pool is it...i.e. vinyl or plaster?
