I swear that I've read Pool School at least 5 times. I've read the SWG page. I've read the worthless manual that came with my sytem. And I'm trying REALLY HARD not to listen to Leslie's and my pool warranty lady (who I cannot STAND, by the way).
So my question is regarding my SWG and chlorine output levels. My FC tests at 1.5 today and CC at .5 . How do I know when the levels will come up on their own by dialing up my cell output percentage (which was at 50% and I dialed it up to 80 at advice of warranty witch) this morning OR when I need to manually add bleach or shock? According to the CYA/Chlorine chart I need to have a minimum FC of 4 and target 6. Warranty witch said to dial up to 80 and shock.
Salt 4200 (geez...this is what my digital readout says....I don't have test strips for salt). Leslie's printout says 3100 (maybe that is as high as theirs reads???)
So do I add pool calcuator bleach amounts and put 4 in the Target column to get calculation? Do I leave my intellichlor at 80? For how long? It is HOT here---pool temp is at 89 already. My CSI is -.37.
