    Adding some cal-hypo to the pool

    I need to raise my fc a little so i want to add some cal-hypo because i have like allot of it,so i know that i should pre dissolve it in a bucket then pour it slowly infront of the return but when i do that i still get some that doesn't disolve that just sits in the bottom.

    So i was wondering what u guys think if i can pre dissolve it and then pour it in to theSkimmer with the pump running???

    Btw: i have a skimmer and a bottom drain.

    I want to add 3.9 oz of cal hypo to raise my FC by 3

    Yeah, as long as you pour it slowly, that'll work.

    I did that for perhaps a month 3-4 summers a go and got calcium precipitation so badly on my clear pump basket lid, I had to acid wash it twice.

    Pour it slowly so it passes through you pump in a diluted form.

    Thx i'll go ahead and do that now. I have the skimmer and the bottom drain on seperate lines so that it can diluted faster.
