The pool has been full since the weekend of the 4th. After about a week or so we got a hi salt error. The Intex SWG's will NOT generate Chlorine when there is any kind of error code. I kept an eye on things and occasionally put a little bit of shock in to keep the levels up. I picked up the HTH kit just the other day, (I have since ordered the Ft-100). I was going to do the Hayward skimmer mod last weekend and decided I'd rather float. We has a hard ran on Sat and I had to drain water off the pool. I went ahead and drained it a bit more then re-filled. No more hi salt error. I run the SWG 6 hrs a day and the pump for 8. Anyway I did all the test today when I got home and here are the numbers. Once I get this thing balanced, hopefully I can keep it maintained with the BBB method. Not opposed to MA if necessary, but chemicals to be kept at a minimum.
FWIW the pool is in full sun all day north of McKinney, TX
TC 5 - 5+(kit only reads to 5)
th 190 -200
So, what are the opinions of the experts here? Last thing I want is this thing to go boom and turn green
