    Well, those appear to be pool store or test strip numbers anyway, so they are all suspect.

    Order one of the Recommended Test Kits before you open next year.

    What is your water temp? We do not recommended closing until the water is staying under 60 degrees ... have you read this?

    No, you won't need higher than CYA 80 with salt. Cya 80 is high limit for SWG's.

    If you close too early... >60 degrees, a whole lot more Algae will grow that you'll have to deal with next year.
