After surviving yet another tax season, came to the conclusion I needed SWG to avoid the CL lugging hassle, especially when working late and not making it in time to the store. So, as of today, I have the SWG installed.
A few questions:
- Test strip indicated 2,520-2,720 PPM salt (depending on where you judged the peak to stop). Panel instant salinity shows 4,100 and the average salinity (default setting) shows 3,500. Which one do you trust? Last salt add was >24 hrs ago.
---If the strip, should I calibrate the panel?
---If the panel, which reading?
---The water does taste lightly salty (at least to me) so if the rule of thumb is 3,000PPM is the taste threshold, then I am definitely over.
- What are the best times to run the pump/SWG? Pool is in direct sunlight a good 8 hrs/day. Figured I'd run after the sun goes down to replenish and minimize loss due to sun with a mid/late morning run to get it back up to optimal level and help it get through the day before the evening run (total 6-8 hrs / % output to be determined). Or is it better to go non-stop from mid-afternoon till evening (i.e., the 6-8 hrs consecutively).
---Electricity costs are same regardless of time
---Just one-speed pump, so no "run it on low for the whole day" option available
- Any other thoughts/advise (other than "you won't miss your trips to the PS and lugging the CL!")
As usual, thanks!
