    About to change to salt, current water conditions

    Hoping to change to SWG this weekend. Trying to get the water to an optimum conversion point, this is what I have so far (note, I havent tested CYA because I ran out of reagent....I know its important, just assume [I know, I know] that it will be at 70 or so before I start changing over)

    FC - 13 (currently shocking, and after the CYA Ive added I *should* be somewhere around 60 or so so the FC isnt as high as it would seem)
    CC - 0
    pH - 7.8
    TA - 80
    CH - 90

    All tests were done with the TF kit.

    The only thing Im questioning is the pH...should I lower it before starting the conversion process? I know running the SWG will raise the pH, but Im not sure what dumping all the salt will do to it (if anything)

    Also, I wanted to get borates into the there any advantage to doing it before, after, or during the SWG change over? My mind is telling me to wait since I dont want all those things changing at once.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can go ahead and add the salt. The pump needs to run 24 hours before starting the Swcg.
