Ok, so some of you may have followed my build thread, which was not ideal as far as the PB who I used, and they continue to drive me crazy.
We received our test kit a few weeks ago and I have posted the results once on my original thread but haven't posted here yet b/c the first month they are in charge of the chemicals and that isn't an option.
They have taken things from bad to WORSE.
The initial readings I had before a 9 day vacation were as follows:
Free Cholorine 1.5
Combined Chlorine .5
Calcium Hardness 125 PPM
I come back from vacation and the
chlorine is 0.
Phosphates are 50ppb
PH is 7.8
(Their test kit)
oh and SALT is 4800 and I have never one time placed salt in my pool, Personally I've added nothing to the pool yet. I was starting this week since they are done, but now I am at a total loss with the salt so high and wondering if the SWG which they gave me is working right. Every test the chlorine is low or nothing at all and the salt is always a little high. NOW its almost 5000. THE SWG is nothing like friends pools, you don't' get a reading on it, and no other local pool company has heard of it.
I'm not sure where to even start now, should I empty water and start there. I also am having 35 people over Saturday so afraid to mess too much with it but afraid could get algae.
