    Unhappy Lost but I have #'s. Swg

    I have an above ground pool 24" round
    1.5HP Hayward pump
    Sand filter
    Clearwater SWG
    13,600 GAL

    I have been running the pump 24/7 for around 7 days
    It hasn't gotten to where I can completely see the bottom yet
    Having the SWG all I did was add 80 lbs of salt and was hoping
    That it would clear up. So I then added 160 more lbs of salt and one box
    Of borax let that run for another day and a half. These are the #'s I came up with.
    Oh I just got a test kit . I know pretty stupid not to have that always on hand.
    But now I have it and OK a week of wasted electricity .
    OK the #'s

    SALT 6.4
    PH. 6.2 VERY LOW
    Total alcalinity very low.

    Remember I have a SWG and I took it apart and i am cleaning it.
    14,700k Gal . round above ground.
    1.5 HP Pump-- Sand Filter
    Thanks All for the Support.

    How did you get those test results? Some of them don't make any sense.

    Salt should be a number between something like 3000 ppm and 5000 ppm.
    PH should be maintained between 7.2 and 7.8 at all times

    We need numbers for your test results. Very low doesn't mean much.
