    Salt Testing

    I took a test using the taylor drop test and it came out at 2900ppm. The SWG is reporting 3300ppm. I know the philosophy is always trust your numbers, but my understanding is there is potentially a 400ppm swing in the test. I am just trying to figure out where to go from here. Any input would be much appreciated.

    Split the difference? 3100? You're in the ballpark. I believe your unit needs between 2700-3400 PPM so you're good to go. Any fault indicators?

    You are good. There is no reason to worry about the exact number, it is clearly in the right general range.

    Your responses are much appreciated. The reason I worry, is that I travel frequently in the summer and don't want to come home to a green pool. Still trying to learn the ways of the SWG, but I have to say since installing it and learning about TFP, it truly has been a trouble free summer! No real issues, and it has been great!
