I have an AutoPilot Dig 60 running normally at 37% level 2 w/ salt at 3400 PPM maintaining FC ~5 ppm @ 84 degrees 12 hour filtering.
We just had a bad rain storms & had some dirt run into the pool from landscape run off - and had to drain a good bit of water to prevent from overflowing and started the clean up by shocking ( w/ bleach) sweeping etc good news is it should be completely clean by morning.
Since I drained water from the pool and diluted the existing salt reading with rain water - the salt level dropped to 2800 using a taylor drop salt test - however the Autopilot started reading 4700 for salt level ( I was running it in boost mode and shocked with bleach to 25 ppm to clean up after a rainstorm). My question is why is the autopilot reading so high? I recalibrated the salt reading on autopilot - and turned the purifier down to zero - and using bleach until it is all clear. (Other #s CYA 60 - PH 7.2 Alk 90 Calc 210 CC 0 33K IG Vinyl Solar heat)
Thanks in advance. My guess is the high chlorine level made the autopilot reading high and it would have dropped on it;s own -- but since I recalibrated -- will I have to recalibrate again once it goes back to normal FC levels?
