    "LO" salt reading on saltron retro & low FC- how to fiix?

    Have 5,500 gallon pool (12x20 above ground). No problems until now. Said LO salt yesterday and low FC and I put in half bag of salt. How long should I wait until both levels go up?

    test first, what ever you do don't add salt!!, look at your SWG and see if you see any white crystal build up, if you have hard water like I do you will have to remove SWG and clean, follow directions on cleaning, I use white vinegar, close valves, if sand filter put in closed position, and close return valve, remove SWG, fill with vinegar let set for a few hours, I usually let set overnight, reinstall all good for about a month.

    No white crystal buildup. Just checked salt level now and it says normal. I'll run it again overnight and check chems tomorrow to see if FC goes up. I'm also cleaning pool filter tonight too bc the water flow seems a little low (I think).

    I also have the Saltron
    When I add salt It usually only takes an hour or so to come back to green.
    depending on how many hours you have oit set to it may take a day or 2 to get the Fc up
    Depending on what the level was to start
