Brand new to the pool world. I have a 25K gallon salt water pool and have been having chemical issues that I can't seem to get straight. My buddy has a pool and has tried to give me some pointers, but they don't seem to be helping.
Autopilot salt system set to 3200 ppm
water temp hovers between 78-83 (SW Florida)
DE filter, pump runs 6hrs a day.
I am the only one at the house and the pool gets used maybe once a week.
Ok the issue is my bromine and chlorine levels are through the roof. I've tried 2 different brand test kits and both peg out those 2. PH is showing normal to a tad high, TA is back down to normal though it was high, and hardness is normal. I've been adding muratic acid in 1qt "bombs", but it doesn't seem to have any affect. My buddy mentioned it could be MPS "goosing" the readings, but from what I understand that is from shock and I have yet to shock the pool since I've had the house (almost 2 months). That being said the water "looks" and feels fine. No cloudy or debris issues and I can open my eyes with zero burn. Water has a very light salt taste to it.
