I'm new to all this. I've been tweaking my T/A down with acid & aeration. Also since my FC was strangely high, I turned off my SWG for about a week. During this time my water has looked fine.
This morning I took it into my head to turn the SWG on again at 10% (previously it was 30%, then 20%, then off) when my FC reading was 6.5. Six hours of running and I'm seeing these large white "paint chip" looking flakes deposited under the return eyes. Easily vac'd up, thankfully. WTH? My chlorine also went up to 7.5. I've again turned the SWG off.
Latest readings tonight via my TF-100 test kit are:
T/A 150 (yay! It was 300 on 4/2, so acid and aeration are working steadily)
Temp-68 (cool day, lots of aeration dropping temp)
Are SWG meant to be turned off and on so? I thought they were intended to be left alone? What is winter mode and is that something I might want to use to keep it on yet low output while chlorine high?
What are those flakes, salt precipate? Residue after the SWG does its thing? I've never read anyone else here mention them so am getting concerned.
