Hi all - still muddling along with dip tests and your help......
Would appreciate some 'gut feeling' 'seat of the pants' type help (FYI no proper test kits in this part of the world!)
FC +/- 7 pH 7.3 today CYA 60 - from dip strips....so +/-
Pool up to 22°c (73F) and clear but not crystal. Slightest of green tinge to water (beige tiles) and very local algae bloom on walls. Polaris bag green!
Filter and SWG running 7hrs/24. SWG produces 24g/hr....or should.
Under 'normal circumstances how long should SWG need to run?
Have dipped pool for salt (Nacl) and it gives 0.8g/l...very low. Added 1 g/l salt and SWG cut out salt too high! Called manufacturer and he said lower salt....I did, back to +/- 0.8g/l and running again.
What else can make salt readings unreliable? and at low levels of Nacl will SWG actually produce the cl it says?
Your thoughts much appreciated.
(thx to CC and comments on another board.....above also on 'lost in france' on testing/balancing water)
