I just bought a salt test kit to check salt level for Aquarite SWG system. SWG shows 3100 ppm, but the test kit shows 7000 ppm. I check the test kit against free water and it seems to work fine. Would other levels - chorine - ph - CH affect the test? The reason I'd added salt to start with was because the system was not generating chlorine and we'd accidentally drained 25% of the pool by taking out a pool cleaner without unhooking it from the return system - plus a lot of rain. So it didn't seem crazy to be down that amount of salt.
When I perform the kit test - the first silver nitrate drop creates a percipitate blob of something. Is that normal?
Assuming the Salt level is 7000 - I assume I will have to do a drain and fill - 50% or more. I'm on a well - Geez. What a disaster.
And then I still have a problem with the SWG. -
