    Calcium Hardness

    Current CH is 130ppm, Will I be able to feel the difference in the water if I spend the money to raise it up to say 200ppm?
    Water to me feels soft. If this makes sense.

    With CH it's not so much how the water feels, but what kind of pool surface you have. Without knowing what kind of pool to have, it's hard to answer whether it is something that needs addressed or not.
