    Is it ok to use Calcium hypochlorite for rising CH?

    In the pool school, they said "You increase CH with calcium chloride", but I can find Calcium hypochlorite easily here.

    Thanks,

    Sure. Pool Calculator will tell you how much each gram of cal hypo will add if you change the units (upper right) and enter all your numbers. It's down where it says Effects of Adding Chemicals. You won't be able to add it all at once or the FC will be too high.

    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.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
