Getting my pool online after purchasing a house with it green, and equipment not working. Current readings as of this AM (tested with the good test kit by me) were:.
FC9.5 ...CC 0... CYA 53 (added 3 lbs yesterday when it was at 42, this reading is probably 2 days shy of the actual... I hear it takes time to get an accurate reading)...pH 7.4
Salt 900 (expected b/c we were not running it as a SWG pool... although that is the eventual goal)...
We SLAMed the pool, got it clean and sparkly, and now are trying to get the SWG up and running. The original cell from 2003 was still there. Bought a Hayward T-15 replacement, installed it, the No Cell Power error remained. We removed the circuit cover, it looked like the fuse was not good. Replaced the fuse. Now the reading is High Salt/Amps, which we know is not correct because we don't have salt yet in the pool.
1. Should we go ahead and add salt, possibly is this why the amps are too high (trying to run a SWG on low salt?). If so, why didn't it give a low salt reading?
2. If this is the same problem as the other posts with the K1 circuit, and should we try to find out if that works?
Again, i don't want to add salt if there is an electrical problem, because I can keep running the pool as a non-SWG if this is going to be an expensive fix....
