Hi. Completely a newbie as we just completed our pool install recently. Tested our water yesterday at Fox Pools. Needed to add Oxy Shock, Stabalizer and salt. Salt was at 3,000ppm as tested at Fox and reading on Intellichlor was 2,800ppm.
Added 1/2 bag (10kg or 22lbs) as I was told to at around 1:30pm. Mixed it around pool well but I did pour it on shallow side near skimmer. I know, I know...newbie. Did not turn off SWG as was never told I should, but have read since I should have. Again...argghh. All afternoon through early evening (8pm) SWG reading was 2,850ppm. Checked again at 10pm and it read 9,900ppm! Don't even think this is possible with the amount of salt added. This is a 10,000 gallon pool.
This morning 5:30am SWG still reads 9,900ppm. I have disabled the SWG now and jacked pool pump up to 3,400rpm in an attempt to clear it out.
Is this "normal" for it to read so high after adding salt? Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!!!!
