I'm somewhat new here. I've searched through the forums but it seems the best results come from posting pool type, size, equipment, etc. with current chem numbers so here it goes.
Dallas/Fort Worth area
(will add to signature later)
30,000 gallon in-ground pool
Pentair FNS Plus filter
The pump make/model has been worn off but seems to be working great
AquaRite SWG and Turbo Cell (not currently in use)
We moved into this house about six months ago. For two months I just hired a pool service (same one previous owner used) to open up and maintain the pool until I could take over myself. Turns out, the pool has been running as a non-saltwater pool for five or so years now. The SWG controller seems to be working fine and there is no scaling on the cell. Salt is how I'd like to run it and am now starting the process of doing it that way.
My question is this, how much salt should I add to begin with and what should my settings on the controller be?
Also, (and this may be best responded to in the algae forum) there is some slight algae buildup (nothing that can't be brushed off it seems) around the bottom of the pool. I've attached photos….I think.
My numbers are below. I am happy to use the pool math section but am unsure of what my target numbers should be.
Any help is appreciated.
