    Adjusting Hayward Aquarite

    My Taylor 1766 says the salt is 3200.
    The Hayward Panel says 3800.

    I saw the video on calibrating these numbers but when it gets to the step where you push the re-set button 5 times, the number just stops at the 3800 number and doesn't give me the opportunity to get to the Taylor test number.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks

    You can't calibrate the AquaRite. Just go with the box reading. Periodically check against the k-1766.

    What are the diagnostics.?

    Is 3800 the instant or average salt reading?

    I was afraid you'd say that.

    3700 is the instant salt. Its only 500 off of the 3200 from the k-1766.

    Salt tests are generally considered to be +/- 400 ppm. Therefore, tests can be up to 800 ppm apart and still be considered to be in agreement.

    The true salt level might be right in the middle at 3450 ppm.

    In any case, I wouldn't worry about it. Just periodically check and compare. Watch for long term averages or readings that are more than 800 ppm apart.
