We have been trying to maintain our FAC since 7/2.
7/2 it was 3
7/3 it was 2 and we added bleach because we needed to get it up quickly bc we were having a party
7/4 it was 4 with bleach
7/7 it was 2.5 and pH was 7.8. Turned the SWG to 40%
yesterday the quick test said the chlorine was 5 (which I somehow doubt) - I have ordered more of the FAC stuff. So I have been using the quick test.
today it was 2. (eeking out a tiny bit of powder from our test kit)
A couple days ago it said check cell. we reset it and it seems fine. we never reset it after we turned it on after the plaster redo.
how long do you give it to bring the chlorine up? we are trying to see if it's not working. it's hot here and my husband doesn't want to add bleach bc he says we won't know if the SWG is working or not. It's a Hayward SWG
