I have been having some major issues with my salt cell clogging up with calcium. I've taken water to Leslie's pool supply for testing and they always show 250-300ppm; latest was 270. It didn't add up so I deided to take matters in to my own hands,and do my own testing. I bought a TF100 test kit and it's showing 800ppm for CH!
The other day I was trying to figure out why the PC2000 in floor cleaner wasnt working and it actually seems like one of the 2" pipes is blocked with calcium!
I read that the only way to get CH downs to replace water, but the pool store says my Venetian glass pool can only be emptied when temp's are below 70F. Here in Phoenix, that means waiting to Dec or Jan. Are there other options to reduce calcium? Any way to stop it blogging my whole system up?
Any ideas how to unclog a pipe chocked up with calcium?
