So, total NOOB to the SWG. PB just started it up today. Dumped in 4 bags of salt around 2 and by 8:00 tonight the salt level is up to 3,200 ppm. I can definitely taste it a bit, but doesn't seem objectionable.
So did a full test now that I am off bleach / pucks. Was running through two trichlor pucks to add CYA. Here are the numbers from tonight:
The pool is Wet Edge pebble, and just now 31 days old. So still curing. I have been had a slowly rising pH (goes from 7.5 to 8 in about 3 days) was suggested that is from the plaster still curing. So:
Should I bring my CYA up to about 70-80? Given that I am in Houston, we get some serious sun. Pool calc seems like CSI is a little high. Looks like my pH is to blame. Will add some acid in the morning.
So, math aside, how does this thing work (settings wise)? It's a Hayward TCell 15. It's set at 75%. What exactly does that mean? It was set at 75% when I left the PB, and when I came back around 6, it was "off, goal reached". What exactly does that mean?
How does one "dial in" this thing? I have a VS pump and I have 4 settings (90, 70, 50, 30). I have it run from 7:30 to 10:00 on 70 (when the cleaner runs too), go down to 30 from 10:00 to 2:00 and go back to 50% from 2 to 6. The pool is sparkling clean.

Edit, just found and read the SWG / Pool school. Looks like I need to lower pH, and drop TA a bit. Bring up my CYA too.
