    Room For Improvement?

    This was done at my local Leslie's and I question the result of the salt test. My pool is 21,550 gallons and my SWG is not indicating the salt level is low.

    FAC: 4
    TAC: 4
    Salt: 2100
    CH: 300
    CYA: 60
    TA: 70
    pH: 7.4
    Pho: 500

    The room for improvement is to get your own test kit. Pool store tests are notoriously unreliable.

    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Well, assuming that it is in the ballpark of being accurate, those are good numbers. Coming from a pool store though, we never really know for sure.

    Phosphate levels are not important.

    Thanks for that. Currently out of work and don't have the cash to be spending on a new test kit right now.
