    How old is the Intex SWG? If it is older, I would just replace it. If it is fairly new, I recommend replacing water to get the salt level down, regardless of what the test strips say.

    I wouldn't drop it too much, these little guys seem to be picky about the salt amount. Mine was saying low salt when my strip read just under 3000. Also could have been that it wasn't mixed in enough after all the rain we had and little use by swimmers. Swimmers are the best stirrers
