New pool, 5 weeks old. Converted to salt this week, Monday. PB set the Pentair IC 40 at 60%, added salt and said to test frequently until we figure out the right settings. IC40 says green light on the salt ppm.
Just got the Taylor K-1766 test kit today. Pulled water sample and tested water in kitchen.
Salt came back over 4000 ppm, couldn't believe it, as pool shop said it was 3400 yesterday, and we added nothing.
Ran test again, noticed that with the first drop of the R-0718 I got something almost solid in bottom of tube, didn't clearly mix. IS that normal? Kit says nothing about it. As I was adding drops, it got very cloudy, but never pink salmon/brick red. 19 drops very cloudy, milky, funky sludge in the bottom, 20th drop turned brownish.
IS this normal with test kit? Like I said first test today after kit came in the mail.
As I side note, according to the powder chlorine test, its really cranking out chlorine. Yesterday at pool shop was 5, today with the TFT powder test, it reads 16!
I'm not sure if I believe the 16, so will take sample to store again tomorrow.
All help greatly appreciated.
