My first test with my new TF100 test kit:
CYA 90-100 (repeated three times, hence the range)
Temp 62 (burr)
FC high because I am dialing in my new SWG. Was set at 75%, running 12 hours / day. Dialed it down to 50%.
CYA high from using those stupid pucks, argh.
Don't know why salt is so high. I tested prior to buying the salt and brand new test strips showed no measurable salt in the pool. I used the Pool Math calculator and added 520 pounds of salt which should have given me a 3600 ppm level, my CircuPool SWG calls for 3500 ppm. A week ago, my brand new SWG readout started at 3500 but was reading 3900 yesterday, I don't know why the descrepancy between it and my tests and why the salinity reading is increasing when my test strips showed it to be steady.
Any ideas on the why salt level is nowhere close to the calculation, the descrepancy between SWG reading and tests, and the SWG reading increasing?
In any case I see a 22% water replacement in my future to knock the cya and salt levels down. Gotta do it in stages though because I am on a well and a 3700 gallon hit on it could cause me problems.
