    Hardness in an above ground vinyl pool

    Does water hardness need to be balanced in an above ground vinyl pool?

    My area has soft water and my hardness always tests very low. I have a plastic pool ladder and no stone or masonry touching the pool. Do I need to be concerned about my water softness?

    12 foot round above ground vinyl pool, 52 inches depth (approximately 3400 gallons), cartridge filter, single speed 3/4 horsepower pump (both cartridge & pump from local pool store - proprietary brand), pool installed August, 2006 on sand, new liner installed June, 2014.

    No. Low CH does not matter in vinyl pools.
