    Salt too high

    My swg runs optimum at 4000, my salt level is 5320. How do you you get it lower? I would rather not drain water because my cya is only 50,and I need to bring that up.

    What should I do. I do not want to damage my equip. with a salt level too high.

    There are only two ways to get the salt level down, replace water and a reverse osmosis treatment. Check your SWG manual to see how high it can have the salt level and still work. You probably won't need to replace all that much water.

    It said in the manual not to exceed a salt level of 13000ppm, it will damage the electronics. So i guess I am safe there. How about the pump and I also have a heat pump, could it do any damage to them?

    As long as your Salt level is below 6000 there isn't any significant risk to the pool. The risk of corrosion from salt rises very slowly as the salt level goes up to about 6000. Over 6000 it rises much more quickly.

    Thank you, I need to add water today so that should help a bit.
