I just bought a house with a SWG, type "Natural Chlor SMC20). I don't know exactly how old it is but the paper manual states that the correct salt content should be 5-6 g/l which should correspond to 5-6000ppm. Looking at all the info in here does this not seem very high ?
Also by looking up their web page, the current technical info states 4 g/l (which they state is equal to seawater which obviously it is not):

The salt content of my pool was down to less than 2000ppm and I just added 50kg of salt (NaCl) to it (approx 30m2 pool) which brought it up to about 2500ppm. Question now is how much more should I increase it ? I guess it is a lot easier to add salt than to reduce so I was hoping for some advice here before committing to more salt.
One other question also:
After an extended pool party with lots of drunken people falling in the pool with their clothes on the pool turned swampy and I shocked it with 4 liters of liquid chlorine. This did wonders to the color but I am now running above 10ppm chlorine (both free and total). How long should I expect for this to burn off or should I do something to actively bring it down. I am also slightly low on cyanuric acid content but figured I'd better keep that low to aid reduction of the chlorine. Any helpful tips here also ?
Thanks for a brilliant forum. I am a total newbie to pools so picked up a lot of useful info here
