I just switched my 27400 gal. vinyl pool over to a salt system (the pool is new to me as well), a Hayward AQR-15. My service manager at the store that installed it told me to add 18 bags of salt, I added 16, holding 2 back in case I didn't need it. As it turns out I may not have needed 2-3 other bags as well since I have 4200-4300 ppm. Should I let this go for a time or dump now?
A similar thing happened with CYA (I added 16 lbs when I probably only needed 2-2.5, again on manager recommendation; I was also freaking out a little because I couldn't keep Cl in the pool with all of the sun so I just dumped everything I had late at night and low on sleep (OOPS). I know I'll need to dump that at some point so I'm thinking of dumping 20% now, balancing the pool and getting it "swimmable" (which I think it is, my numbers are ok but the water's blue green and cloudy) and handling the rest later? I'm only going on math now, my test kit's in the mail and I should have some real numbers by Monday/Tuesday, should I wait to dump until then?
Happily accepting advice.
