Hello gang, old member of Ben;s old forum 12,000 gallon Gunite with Watermaid SWC built in 2001. Rural North Texas
Closed pool in fall at >600 ppm Calcium. Other than scaling on SWG cell what is danger of going higher Cal? About to be restricted on refilling pools (stage 3 drought) so if I want to lower it I need to prime pump, drain 1/3 and refill with soft water as I have done in the past. Anybody operate at high Cal levels?
Also to reduce average evaporation of 300 gallons/day this summer thinking about using my solar blanket. But of course we will have bath water once the daily highs hit 100+ Thinking we could remove cover at night to allow some cooling, but that would be by evaporation, DUH?
