Perhaps not, but close. I hope I'm not in a pickle here... Appreciate the review. Just added salt to my pool and it ended up off the charts. I am completely baffled as to how it got this high, and can't help but think there has to be some mistake.
BEFORE: 4/9, 7pm
2.2 FC / 0 CC / 7.6 pH / 80 TA / 70 CYA / 2000 Salt
+12oz Acid (31.45%), +160lb Salt; ran pump 24hrs
AFTER: 4/10, 7pm
7.4 FC (SWG running) / 0 CC / 7.8 pH / 15,600 Salt.
YES, 15,600. 78 drops using the Taylor K-1766 kit.
How is this even possible? Before I started, I tested salt 3x. 4/8 I got 2000ppm twice back to back on the same sample, active water. 4/9 I got the same. This was likely residual from liquid chlorine; just installed the SWG. Added slightly less salt than recommended (added 4 bags @ 40lb, recommended was ~184lbs to get me to 4k). Ran the pool for 24hrs to dissolve and turn. Pool is 10-11k gals. After the crazy high reading, I tested again tonight, 48hrs later, and stopped after 40 drops (8000 ppm) because I didn't want to keep dropping up to 76 drops and exhaust my entire bottle of Silver Nitrate. The amount of salt recommendation was consistent between PoolCalc, SWG manual, and the back of the salt bags.
SWG is now off (it did run for 8hrs that next day, 12hrs after salt was added).
Any clues as to what I am missing here? Did someone hop the fence and generously dump another 25 bags of salt into my pool? I don't see how I could possibly go from 2000 to 15,600 ppm using 4 bags of salt...
