    Start-up salt reading?

    When I uncovered our pool on Saturday the digital salt reading was 3400. I was shocking the pool and didn't turn on the SWG. Now on Wednesday when I turn on the SWG it reads 2400 and won't generate. Is this normal? Was the 3400 reading basically just stored in the memory from last season?

    Right, the SWG remembers the average salt level from the last 24 hours it was turned on. Now that it has had time to measure the water this spring it has a more realistic number.
