So I'm just converting to SWG and struggling with my salt levels - according to my Hayward AQR panel I'm at 3400 ppm. According to the (well inside expiration date) Aquacheck strips that came with it, I'm somewhere between 1200 and 2000, depending on which strip I choose to believe.
Based on my rough math regarding the size of the pool, I believe I'm in the low 3000s.
What's the "definitive" check for salt content? I'm clearly a bit frustrated at the wild discrepancy here. Why isn't the panel the trusted number? Isn't it computing this strictly off of power consumption of the cell? Or is the problem that the panel doesn't know the age/condition of the cell accurately?
