    Does adjusting CH affect salt level?

    If I need to add 25-30 pounds CaCl2 to get my CH back to 350 or so after winter partial drain and rain and snow refill, will that affect the salt level I measure with strip test for salt or for Taylor salt drop test. Obviously I am not adding sodium but is all the extra chloride contribute to measured salt level? Just wanting to account for that if needed when adding salt in a couple weeks to open pool.

    Thanks, John.

    25 lb calcium chloride is roughly equivalent to 20 lb salt as far as chloride levels.
