I'm a little over 1 month into my brand new pool (details in sig). I've been diligently handling the pool chemistry and I added the salt just over 1 week ago since I was supposed to wait 28 days for the pebble to cure. I followed PoolMath and bought 18 bags of salt but so far I only put 16 in. I knew it would take a little time for the salt cell to register so my plan was to watch it for a week or so because I had to go out of town the next day for 4 days. I was surprised to see how the Hayward SWG number in Omnilogic drifted up over time during that week. I targeted 3400, and right now the diagnostic says instant salt 3400, average salt 3700 and back on the main screen it says 3679. Since I didn't put all the salt in, I'm surprised it's that high. I bought an AquaChek salt test strip and it showed 3330 last Thursday. Anything to be concerned about here? I hope I didn't over do it?
I just tested my water and here's my current reading:
This resulted in a CSI of -.45, which seems to be in the acceptable range per PoolMath. Any concerns/
I feel like I need to get the TA down to 90 and the CH up to 350. Before I start, I thought I'd ask for feedback. My TA has been steady around 110 the whole time so I thought I'd push the PH down to 7.2 (from my previous target of 7.5) for this week and see what happens to TA. CH has also been low the whole time so I'm thinking it's time to make it move.
I appreciate your help/advice in advance. I love this place!
