bought a new 18 foot above ground pool with SWG last week, after my initial test (water from the tap) they told me to add the salt and 4kg of calcium, i`ve been running my sytem for 5 days now and went to do another test.
this is the result
Salt: 3800ppm (which is good for the model I have)
this is what they suggested,
add 1 KG of ALCA+
add 400 g of PH -
add stabilitser (they didnt say how much) but the label says add 200 grams for every 10000 littre of water I have 26700 littres, so about 500 grams
does this sound right to you guys, sometimes I get the impression that they are screwing me over just so I can buy more of their products.
on my initial test alcalinity and PH was fine, I did what they told me, and now everything is off??
I suspect from reading a little that the main problem was no stabiliser, but is it normal that my chlorine be at 0 if I have been running my pump and swg(running at level4 of 5 (zodiac model)) 24 hours a day for the last 5 days?
any help you guys can provde would be appreciated, I really want to get this thing balanced and start swiming before the season is over
