I got my first test strips for salt (I don't have a SWG). It was becoming easier to taste in the pool. All my pool math calculations just had the default salt level of 1000 or whatever, and because I have high CA my CSI is always trending high ( I also fight high pH).
The test strip shows around 3400 level for salt. I haven't seen any particular thread about the negative effects of high salt, besides taste, but I did notice that once I put that in pool math, my CSI went to 0.01 (assuming my pH is controlled).
I don't want to drain due to high CYA (hence the TFP method). I don't want to drain due to high CA/scaling issues (auto fill is already post-water softener, but still 800 is kinda high). I don't want to drain due high salt.
So, just kinda checking to make sure this will keep in balance, to leave the higher salt to help reduce scaling due to high CA. And if the water is kinda salty tasting oh well I guess..
