Hello all, new to the forum, also a new pool owner. I have never had a pool and bought a house that has a salt water pool. We have only owned it for 4 days and decided to check on thepool. It seems there was some mismanagement by the prior owner. I will give you rundown of the equipment and the chemistry. I am having all sorts of issues.
Water is pretty clear
Chemistry as tested at Leslie's:
Salt 600 ppm
CH 90 ppm
Iron and Copper are both 0
Phosphates is 300 ppb
Now for the equipment issues:
Aquapure 1400 throws the following service codes
144 - low salinity (seems obvious given the low salt level)
172 - Flow Sensor Service
186 - Flow Salinity Sensor/temperature probe error
I guess my main question is, could the lack of salt be the reason for all of the codes. My thinking is the sensors require higher salinity to function properly. It has no chlorine, so I am going to throw some acid to bring pH down and shock to get some chlorine in there.
Thanks in advance for helping the new guy out.
