    Wondering whether some sensor is not right

    I saw this "cold" reading yesterday after having unplugged and re-plugged the SWG. I flipped the switch from OFF to AUTO and then back to OFF and the "cold" reading no longer displays. But I am wondering whether some sensor is not right since the salt reading has just sat at 3100 even after having added 3 40 lb bags of salt after opening the pool. From experience I speculate that the actual level at opening was 2600-2800. The pool store reports 3300 now. The first pool store I went to had told me the level was 500 prior to adding the 3 bags of salt which I know is wrong. Its frustrating having to deal with conflicting data when trying to get the chemistry right!

    I'm sorry I can't solve your issue but your results are sadly common when you depend on the pool store for the "free" testing they provide.

    This forum preaches to ALWAYS trust your own testing with a good test kit.
