    Installing SWG this weekend

    I will be installing my SWG.

    Here are my numbers as of now. Do I need to modify anything?

    Salt a little high, but within range. The Manufaturer says 3500 is best.

    FC 4.0
    CC <.50
    TC 4.5
    PH 7.3
    TA 90
    CH 220
    CYA 80
    temp 84 degrees F
    Salt Taylor k-1766 = 4400 Aquachek white strip = 3820

    I think I am good to go.

    Anything I need to change?
    18x36 IG 26,000 gal, Vinyl Liner, 24" Sand filter Hayward S224T, Jandy AE3000 heatpump and 1.5 HP SuperPump. Circupool RJ45 SWG

    Your FC is too low for your CYA without the generator being installed yet. 4 is the minimum when it's up and running.

    The only thing I see is you might want to bring your TA down a little over time to keep the PH from raising so fast with the SWG. Mine works better around 70 TA but all pools are different.

    I just did the drop test again, and this time the reading was 3800 right on the aquachek strip reading of 3820. The original drop test I did yesterday was my first with the K-1766 kit and apparently not correct.
