    Hello from FL

    Split by moderator. Please start your own thread. Thanks, jblizzle

    Hi all! Just joined this site today! Have had the pool since 2003 and have had no problems keeping it up until I shut the filter off at the end of last summer. What a bear to bring it back! Have had a pool headache since April when I started tackling it! I think I almost have it! Just one question. I read in pool school where a vinyl pool doesn't need calcium. The pool company that tested my water today indicated on the print out that I need to add 25.7 gallons of calcium. Really?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Sounds like they are hoping to make some money as CH is not required in a vinyl pool:
    pool-school/recommended_levels

    Seems like you should order one of the Recommended Test Kits so that you are not relying on inaccurate and non-repeatable pool store testing.

    Thanks jblizzle! My test indicated that was at 115 ppm for CH! Well within the range for vinly. If I am posting in the wrong place please direct me how to create my own! You guys are great! I am going to purchase the kit that helps your site
