I've dreamed of having an IG pool since I was a little girl and my kids and I are so excited about having one now!
Our IG pool (see specs in signature below) was just installed and set up last week. PB put 14, 40 pound bags of salt and 2 gals shock liquid in it last week. I tested the chemicals over the weekend and was surprised to notice that no chlorine was registering (I have a T-something-maybe 400?- test kit) and pH was high - 8.2. However, the SWG panel says the salt concentration is 3000 ppm. We have pump running 9 hours during day at 75%. Why would it say it has that salt concentration but no chlorine?
It rained hard 2 nights ago so yesterday I tested again and got the same results for chlorine and pH. I stopped there and added 2 cups (8 fl oz) of granular shock (tri-chlor) and a gallon of the liquid shock the PB left. A couple hours later the display said the salt was up to 3100 ppm. I have a sample to take to the chemical place during my lunch hour so I'll see what the levels are then. I hope I didn't screw things up. Any advice is MUCH appreciated!
