DescriptionRevolutionary Product Reduces Calcium Hardness
- Uses Filtration to reduce Calcium Hardness 200-400ppm
- Does Not Cloud Pool
Cal Treat is a revolutionary chemical that uses your existing filtration system to filter out Calcium Hardness. Over a week, calcium is collected in the filteration system. Simply back wash the filter to remove the calcium.
The higher your calcium hardness, the more likely your pool will form scale. The ideal calcium hardness range is around 200-300ppm. In the past, the only solution to lowering calcium hardness is draining and then refilling the pool. However, many water sources contain high calcium hardness. Cal Treat saves time and money by removing calcium from the water itself. You can expect your calcium hardness to drop from 200 to 400ppm. Results will vary from pool to pool.
