    New salt system reading 2800 when no salt has been added

    I have just installed a Hayward aquatrol on my 24' AG and when I turned it on to my sunrise the salt reading on the readout is already at 2800. I don't have the generator turned on yet since I am going to get good levels with bleach first. Going to the store now to buy salt to have on hand. Any ideas why this would be happening ?

    How old is the pool and water? All forms of chlorine add salt.

    I did not think the SWG would report a salt level unless it was generating though?

    It's about 36 hours old

    That's normal, it's the default average salt reading. Just ignore. Get your salt right and turn it on.
