I have a salt system.It is weird that you ask this question, since I was just at a pool this afternoon that had exactly that scenario. Their CH was 250, in about 7 year old water, however, their TDS was 6,500+ Additionally, they have a pretty hefty water bill from the waste incurred from the salt system and are running the risk of corrosion from the high salt level. They have to make the decision now to drain or treat the water to drop the salt levels. It kind of seems that they just traded one problem (high CH) for another (high salt/TDS).
Salt test says 4000PPM. CH 1100PPM
(Southern, CA. fill water is really high - just keep adding more CH)
How does trading high CH cause high salt?
Were they using a softener?
Tell me about the RO systems.
What does/do they remove?
What do they leave behind.
What's the cost benefit tradeoff vs drain and refill?
