Thanks to what I've learned here I have managed to get my pool chemistry
to near perfect levels. Just to get an idea my CYA was over 300 when I first moved into this
house last september..and now it's within the tfp suggested levels. thanks very much for the knowledge!
One last item though as the partial drains and refills have all but depleted my calcium levels.
right now CH is 50 and pool math says to add 39 lbs of calcium chloride to get it to 300ppm.
I'm going to buy 50 lbs of that from the nearby pool store (they have very fair pricing on chemicals)
1. Should I mix the calcium chloride in buckets with pool water and dump it in different areas or dump through the skimmer?
2. or should I disperse it using a big cup to just throw it in and sink down into the pool?
3. how long can i expect the CH readings to take effect once I've added? days, hours weeks?
I was planning on adding 25 lbs first then testing to see what happens.
