...just added salt in prep for my Hayward AquaRite install. Used pool math and dumped in 6 bags, the included TEST strips showed low so I added another bag...still low. Added another bag. Low. Started up salt generator after running pump 24hrs and 5400PPM!!! It even tasted salty. Ran to pool store to verify, yup... 5000+
Drained maybe 2,000gal of expensive florida water and its still 4100.
My advise, throw out those test strips!!!
Hoping it will be OK to run this high.
Should I drain even more? (this is after I spent many days balancing the water of course)
