    Salt on my rocks... :)

    I have been noticing since summer that when I up the chlorine levels, white lines start to appear around the water line and creeping up the joints. I noticed more salty taste to the water. Last week after raising the FCL to around 10ppm, I had major white stuff not just around the water line but coming up between the stone towards the deck. Two days later, it rained all day and washed the white stuff away. I am assuming it was salt since calcium won't wash away so easy right?

    Once I am out of danger of a freeze, I am thinking its time to change out the water. What is the safest way to change the water without endangering my pool surface or risk of the pool moving? Also, how much time do I have before I need to refill?

    Check the TDS level. Subtract the salt level. Post the results.

    It sounds like salt since it washed away. That is not a signal that you need to change your water though.
