I have a new pool with poolcrete plaster. The manufacture recommends a calcium level of 300 to 400 ppm. I added a huge amount of calcium chloride and the calcium level seems to stop at 175 ppm (enough to raise it over 300 ppm). As I add more calcium chloride it seems to all just go to the bottom of the pool and the ppm does not go up. I have a Taylor test kit and had a local lab test. After a week a vacuums the white layer off the bottom of the pool and sent it to waste. Is it possible that the water could be saturated with calcium?
Water is from a borehole (original lab results attached). Since the report I have only added the calcium, chlorine and acid. The calcium is within an acceptable range and the pH has always been on the high side -- struggling to get it down.
Any thought or suggestions would be most appreciated.
