Just purchased a Autopilot Nano with manifold to convert my pool to salt. This is a new complete unit.
I will be installing myself and am looking for things I should be aware of. I'm mainly interested in start-up concerns.
I have tested for CYA and have a reading of 75-80 which seems good?
My chlorine is on the way down from shocking Sat evening..it should be around 5 when I do install tomorrow.
Ph is 7.2 and TA is70.
Calcium hardness is 140.
I had local pool store check for current salt level and was surprised when he said it was 1400! Does that sound right?
I live in the Tampa area of FL and my water temp is at 84F.
If there is anything in my chemistry that needs adjusting prior to adding salt and firing it up, please let me know.
If one follows instructions, do these units start up with minimal issues? I plan to bond the unit to the ground rod for my pump and heater..is that ok?
Thanks in advance for your help.
