Here is the data asked for yesterday concerning the white flakes floating in my pool. I googled and read the threads and had my water tested today..
I went to the LPS and had water tested since I only have a basic test kit which I will replace very soon with a more extensive kit to perform all test needed to track my pools chemistry. The water here where I live is as hard as granite I am contemplating installing a water softener just for the pool. I drained 3 feet of the pool in July/Aug.
Salt= 3200 by test strip
Salt =3100 reading on SWG display
