We haven't been able to swim at all this season because of the rain, storms, and flooding. I had a SWG installed in April but it's been impossible to keep anything balanced with all the rain. I've had to do many partial drains. The liner floated in the shallow end and it's wrinkly now but the water table is so high I don't know how to work around that. It's in the blue stage, but still cloudy. I am out of the chlorine reagent and it won't be here until Monday so I can't keep it at shock level. Leslie's doesn't sell it here. I'm just keeping chlorine in it. I don't know what to do about the salt. I tested it with Aquacheck test strips. It says it's down to 1830 ppm. That seems right with as much draining as I've had to do. We started the season with a CYA of 80 and it went to 0 (give or take 20.) I have it back up to 52 and am waiting a week just to make sure not to add too much.
I guess I don't even know what my question is as much as ranting! Should I trust the AquaCheck test strips? That would mean I need to add another 300 pounds or so of salt?
