I'm at a loss...
Installed a new Hayward aqr15 and tested the newly filled water with Taylor K-1766.
As soon as I added 1 drop the yellow mixture turned to brick color suggesting there's no salt - all good here. Aqr15's immediate reading was at 0 as well.
I have a 32000 gallon pool so TFP calculator recommends 857lb of salt. Hayward is online here. Morton Pool salt instructions said the same.
Being overly careful not to add too much, I put in 15 bags worth of 600lb of salt. My expectation was to get to around 2200 ppm and then add more.
After shuffling salt around to dissolve and filtering for half a day I went to look at aqr15 - it showed immediate reading of 2500 ppm. I read before that it could be off and expected that.
Then I decided to make a decisive test with Taylor kit and after redoing it 3 times it showed me the salt level of 3000 ppm. Basically every time it took 15 drops for the color to change. I'm finding it very hard to believe that 600lb and every source I've seen could be wrong.
Have you experienced Taylor kit being so mistaken or am I doing something wrong?
I basically fill 10ml of pool water into sample tube, put 1 drop of r-0630 and then was putting r-0718 drop wise (got to 15) and multiplied by 200.
Please help what I should rely on...
Thanks in advance.
