I have been having an issue with getting my calcium.jardness to increase and maintain at a level of 200. I thought it was my reagents for LaMotte ColorQ, but that didn't quite do it. I have the following readings:
FCL 1.74; TCL 1.97; CCL .23; pH 7.3; Alk 97; CH 163; CYA 53
I have added nearly 15 lbs of Calcium Hardness Increaser and the highest I got in CH reading was 185 and now it is back to 165.
I thought I had a leak last year, but nothing noticeable in dye or bucket tests. What can be the issue?
I have a kidney bean ungrounded vinyl pool aboit 15,000 gallons with a DE filter and automatic chlorinator.
