    Pool Pilot Digital - New Home

    We just bought a 12 year old home that has a salt water pool and a Pool Pilot Digital system. I want to learn as much as I can. Forgive the novice question but the water is very soft and smooth but it seems as if people's fingers wrinkle very quick when swimming. Does this mean anything? I know it sounds strange but we have never had a pool before. I know it is at 100% purify right now. Thanks so much!!

    Is your SWG system giving any high or low salt errors? Do you have a test available to test the salt level of the pool? How are you testing for proper sanitation, pH and other levels?

    Here's an interesting article on wrinkly fingers: Why Do Our Fingers and Toes Wrinkle During a Bath? - Scientific American

    Yes. The only thing that came back was the water is a little hard. How can I lower the water hardness level?

    Sorry. The salt level appears to be fine. 3400. Like I said, the only thing that was high was the water hardness.

    The only way to lower CH is to drain pool water and replace with water that has a lower CH. However, if it is pool store testing, I would not trust the test results.

    Here at TFP, we rely on accurate, convenient home testing. See here: Pool School - Test Kits Compared
