I pretty much have my pool water under control, except for high TA, but I'm now questioning my salt levels. My SWG says I'm at 3100ppm.
With the Taylor K1766 salt you have to be really careful to not go too far, from "milky red" to "brown." Brown is bad. Really, the difference would be one drop, or 200ppm so it won't totally mess you up, but just inflate your value. But what I found tonight, was that I think I was going one drop too far before, and now, calibrated to look for the right color (I was rushing the drops I think and not letting them mix throughly befoer adding the next one), I'm finding results that tell me I'm low in salt. Around 2600ppm.
My question is the precision of this test. Does anyone have any other experience with it? Is it pretty accurate? I can't compare with test strips, as I found the salt test strips to be junk. Since my SWG says 3100ppm, is being 500ppm high, considered normal in terms of a SWG reading? Are they not as accurate?
