Adding calcium hardness to swimming pool water will help prevent swimming pool corrosion, help prevent etching of pools, rapidly increase total hardness levels, and help maintain balanced pool water.
Suncoast® Calcium Hardness Increaser is a dry granular product that increases the total calcium hardness in pool water to the recommended range. It is an easy and convenient to use, metal-free pool product that will not stain the pool.
Directions for Use:
Test for calcium hardness with a reliable pool water test kit. The desired range for calcium hardness is as follows:
Vinyl Pools….. 200-300 ppm (parts per million)
Tile and Exposed Aggregate Pools….. 200-400 ppm
Marcite, Fiberglass or Painted Pools….. 250-400 ppm
If the calcium hardness tests less than the desired range, add Suncoast® Calcium Hardness Increaser according to the chart below. Place Suncoast Calcium Hardness Increaser in a plastic bucket already filled with swimming pool water. Do this in a ratio of up to 2 pounds of product per approximate 5-gallon bucket of water. Slowly pour this solution around the perimeter of the swimming pool while the circulating system is operating. In a 10,000 gallon pool, do not add more than 10 pounds of Suncoast Calcium Hardness Increaser per 2 hours.
Note: Be careful when handling this solution. This product generates heat when combined with water. Keep out of the reach of children.
