    AquaRite and Calcium

    The AquaRite manual wants there to be calcium in the water. I am not sure if this is just general pool thinking like Leslie's will tell you. If the AquaRite really needs it, I would like to know since I just switched to an AquaRite SWG. Do we really need the calcium up to their recommended levels? Does it help with keeping water balance at all?

    The only thing that raising the CH level would do is increase your chance of calcium scaling within the cell. The SWG should not care what the CH level is.

    Interesting.... On page 4 of this pdf file (I think it's the same manual) it says,
    "The table below summarizes the levels that are recommended by The Association ofPool and Spa Professionals (APSP). The only special requirements for the Aqua Rite
    are the salt level and stabilizer
    "

    Emphasis added.

    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!

    I agree, sounds like I shouldn't care much. I have got to ask, just in case I am missing something. Thanks fellas.
