    Question on water softener and pool

    Hi, we just had a pool built and I of course did not fill the pool with softened water. I just cleaned the whole pool area and power washed the deck. The deck is Mission Tan in color (SunDek) and looks great when wet. When the water evaporates it leaves a white residue across the whole deck which needless to say ticked me off after spending hours cleaning it up. So, my question is, can I now add a water softener and filter system to my well and use that for topping off the pool without any issues? Thanks!!!

    That should be fine and even a good idea of you have high CH levels in your water. Have you tested the water?

    Yup, the water has been tested and is all within acceptable parameters. Just have that stupid haze on the ground. Lol Pool is crystal clear.
