Hi Guys - thanks for your assistance.
To make a long story short:
Converted to salt - 11K Gallon - using SwimPure TC-9 Cell for 25K Gallon. Installation went well.
Was told to dump 10 40lb bags in pool to get started - 480 ppm per bag - at the time time - they thought my pool was 15K Gallon - measurements were off.
Too much salt in pool due to incorrect sizing of pool - 5500 ppm as per SwimPure instant salinity display
Called GoldLine support - told to drain and keep cell off until ppm is around 2700 to 3200
High Salt Indicator - DID NOT GO ON - no clear answer as to why from pool store or GoldLine support.
Drained and refilled - salt numbers on display went from 5500 to 4200 thus far
Brought water into pool store - Salt PPM is 3900 - still need to drain and refill a bit more.
Pool guy 1 in store says drain another 3 feet
Pool Guy 2 in same store says drain 1.6 feet
Called Goldline support they started don't use / trust the numbers on the computer.
So I ask - what your advice is and experience?
Also, why would Hayward sell very expensive SWG devices (control unit / cell) that report incorrect salt results in order to maintain a salt system?
