On Sunday evening we had a very heavy rainstorm (6 inches in less than a hour), resulting in some debris washing into our pool. I have vacuumed up all the mulch and grass but the water is still cloudy from mud.
I am in the process of SLAMing the pool and therefore have the SWCG turned off, but have noticed that, since the storm, my control panel is saying that my salt level is critically low (2100 ppm, according to the panel). I have confirmed that my salt level is normal at 3000 ppm (down from 3200 before the rainstorm) using the Taylor NaCl drop test.
Is this discrepancy the result of the panel being confused by the cloudiness of the water? If not, what might be the cause and how do I go about fixing it?
(BTW, the SWCG is less than a year old, installed in August of last year.)
