Love the forum thank you - new pool owner and i'm holding off on spending the $40/w on professionals while i give myself a chance to be a complete owner
After joining the forum in the last few days and reading up - i online ordered a Taylor test kit and some cyanuric acid
My SWG was showing a reading of 2.5 grams per litre (2500ppm) when i hit the salinity button - so off i went for my 4 dollar 40 pound blue bag of salt crystals (may need another) from the Big Box store and didn't i feel special and empowered as i deposited said salt into my own pool - in the shallow end - and turned the % down to 0 on my SWG, then set my pump to remain on for 24 hours. I appeared dangerously close to competent to my extremely dubious wife.
Checked the reading this morning (handy how the SWG salinity reading is available even while the cells are turned down to off) and we're at 2800 - so almost there; apparently i'm shooting for 3,000..
Once i have the water kit i'll see if i truly need to add CYA since the professional guy that turned up said my level was zero - stay tuned and thanks again for a terrific Forum!!
Question: ok to turn off the pool sweep during the 24 hour window? or negligent impact either way?
