    Can I use calcium chloride ice melt pellets to increase CH in pool?

    Hello classmates. I have a 27' AG pool and I was told that my CH was about 100 and of course they wanted me to buy their products. What I am asking is this, can I use calcium chloride ice melt pellets to accomplish this?

    You do not need Calcium in your liner pool!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Not so fast. While Calcium may be more important in a plaster pool, low calcium will cause you vinyl liner to get stiff.
