Hello all. We've had our pool for about 2 months now. It's SWG, so we've had the SWG on for about 3 weeks. Right now, the Chlorine/PH test registers orange when I test chlorine, so it's a bit high. I've been adjusting the % that the SWG spits out for a few days now to try to lower it. Pool builder set it at 50% for 8 hours. Our pool now runs for 7 hours each day, 3 hours of infloor cleaning, and 4 hours of filtering/SWG. Given the crazy level of chlorine, I've set the 4 hours of filtering to 20% and the cleaning to 0 in hopes of bringing it down, then will try to stabilize after that.
I bought the TF100 kit and did my first full test with it today. Here's what I got.
CH: no reading
Water Temp: 55
A few questions - in the instructions for the kit, there is nothing mentioned about the pH so I just used the blue dropper kit, is this correct? Also, I got to 50 drops on the CH and still no blue water, so I gave up. Not sure if anyone has any hints on this... I'm hoping my CH isn't over 500...
Other questions: would anyone be doing anything else differently? Running the filter longer/shorter, running the infloor cleaning longer/shorter? etc? Do I need to worry about any of my measurements? I'll try the CH again after I get some feedback on this board. I was reading that CYA should be higher for an SWG pool, so should I start to raise that up, or is it generally ok?
Thanks for the help everyone!
