OK, I know I am getting ahead of myself because the pool is not even done yet, but I want to build an understanding prior to the time it comes to fill the pool. I have two readily available options to fill my pool.
1) use my raw well water
2) use softened well water
CH 0 or near 0
Can someone recommend which option is better?
I have a TF test kit and that is what I used to come up with the numbers.
The way I see it, it probably would be better to use the softened water because I am going to have to airate like crazy no matter which source I use to get the T/A down and the conditioned water should be lower in "other" solids. The only additional thing I will have to do if I use the conditioned water is add calcium right away to get the CH up. Does this sound right? What should I used to get the CH up as I fill? Thanks for your help. Ron
