Softwater in pool on accident

Postby StormGod » Thu 01 Nov, 2007 19:57

I have heard that soft water is bad for the pool, however, I just built a pool in my back yard after buying a new home and come to find out that the outside lines of my house is hooked up to my water softner, which is discouraging due to the fact that I had asked for this feature and was told they couldnt do it. Now I find out after filling up my pool that he did it and now I have a brand new pool (salt water system) that is full of filtered water.

What should I do? Empty and start over with standard water?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just increase the calcium level in your water by adding calcium carbonate. Follow the manufacturer's instructions but this is all you have to do.
