    How to add calcium chloride

    So I have read two different ways to add calcium chloride. 1. Mix it in a bucket with water, but watch out that it doesn't, melt the bucket. 2. Put it straight into the pool, but be careful that it doesn't leave calcium deposits. Help! Advice please. Thanks

    Calcium products should be spread across the surface of the deep end of the pool.

    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!

    Be sure to brush immediately, and thoroughly, if you broadcast calcium chloride. Have a brush ready as calcium chloride can harden very quickly on the bottom of the pool, especially if it's cold.
