Hi, I measured my CH at 250 and trying to get it up to 300. Chlorine pool, 10,000 gallons.
Can I use solar salt to increase CH? If so do I use the pool calculator's same amounts as listed for calcium chloride?

Thank you!

Solar salt will have no effect on CH.

You need to add calcium chloride.

Put it in the pool. Elevated salt levels in the water make it much more comfortable to swim in.
