How do you get calcium out of of pool water?

Once calcium concentrations reach levels that cause problems, it's very difficult to deal with. An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure in this case. If you're already at that unfortunate stage, you need to drain your pool, at least partially, and refill it with water that hopefully is not full of dissolved calcium. There are some chemicals that chemically bond with the calcium to prevent it from precipitating out of solution, but they're expensive and not totally effective. One common source of calcium contamination is chlorine based upon calcium hypochlorite. If I got it for free I wouldn't use it. Look for calcium-free chlorine, but if you have a vinyl liner, make sure your chlorine choice is compatible with vinyl.

How is sodium metal prepared?

Using Downs process, by the electrolysis of molten sodium chloride. This is done in a Downs Cell in which the NaCl is mixed with calcium chloride to lower the melting point below 700 °C. As calcium is less electropositive than sodium, no calcium will be deposited at the cathode. This method is less expensive than the previous Castner process of electrolyzing sodium hydroxide.
