I have an Aquarite Plus SWG that indicates 2800-3400 salt level is optimal. We added 880 pounds of salt on 13 July for our 24000 gal pool. Salt level readings were 2800 the first few days and now fluctuating between 4100 and 4300 (?). The salt strips test show 3680 consistently. The water does taste a bit salty and I have just noticed some white powdery stuff on the metal of the pool brush; hubby tasted and does not think its salt. Watery is super clear and sparkly. ETA: No "salt too high" warning lights are on the control panel
At present, we have
pH 7.2 (just added MA last night so expect this to bounce back up very soon)
T/A 130 (cannot get this below 110)
CYA about 60
We are coming off a shock level at 20 so this is why FC is so high. Should we keep it there? Also, the SWG is set at 35% now. We run it during the daytime.
At this point we are wondering if we should dump and refill some of the water or let it be.
Thanks for you insight!
