After successfully getting my CYA down to the ~80 range, I got all my other chemicals into balance. I used over 15,000 gallons of water getting that CYA down! I spent yesterday afternoon installing my new SWG. I added the salt in the morning to let it dissolve. Everything went quite smoothly and I've been allowing the pump to run all night. I tested the water this morning and got these results:
Water is crystal clear
FC: 0 (Man, where did it go? It was at 10 yesterday morning!)
CC: (Didn't test, but it was at 0.5 Saturday morning)
Salt: 3560 (Apparently, my pool isn't really a full 20,000 gallons as I overshot my target of 3200)
So, it looks like I need to replace a little more water to get the salt down. It also appears I should add some calcium in to bring the CH up a bit. And, obviously, I better pour in some bleach.
I haven't turned on the SWG, yet, as the manufacturer wanted me to run the pump for 24 hours before I do. I will be firing it up this evening. Should I reduce the salt level before turning on the SWG or will it be OK with a little too much salt?
Based on my numbers, what do you recommend I do? What are my targets?
