    Overnight test results and plan? SLAM?

    We just converted to swg this past week and the chlorine level had been high and climbing each day as we get the shoutout adjusted. Decided to do an overnight test and we went from FC 10 to an 8 overnight. (I did take the morning sample after sunrise but there was no direct light in the pool...

    Starting up SWG this weekend. Checklist?

    We started the SWG Sunday at 70% to get going. FC was at a 4 when we started it up. Yesterday FC was at a 6.5 so I dialed back the output to 60%. Today we are at a 7.5 so SWG is def working but I’m not sure if I need to dial it back more? What’s the best way to figure out % output and hours to...

    Starting up SWG this weekend. Checklist?

    Thanks. Added added conditioner today to brink yo cya. Tested salt again and sitting at 2600 ppm so using pool math app I’m adding another two bags to hit target if 3200? I thought I read some higher at first though so should I add 3 bags? Last question FC is at a 3 today. Not turning on SWG...

    Starting up SWG this weekend. Checklist?

    I believe I have read through all the articles pertaining to this and feel like I know what I’m doing but can’t hurt to ask the experts right?? I did a salt test today and it is 1,000 ppm before adding any salt. Based on this Hayward chart for a 15k gallon pool the recommendation is 293 lbs...

    Converting to salt tomorrow? Adjust target levels?

    Yes I have that kit. I’ll test for salt in the morning before we add. Is there a formula to figure out how many bags of salt somewhere? I’m using the pool math app but I don’t see that option.

    Converting to salt tomorrow? Adjust target levels?

    Also this pool guy said to get 10 40lb bags of salt so we were going to add them all is there more precise way to figure?

    Converting to salt tomorrow? Adjust target levels?

    I have never tested salt as we have been using liquid chlorine til now. Have not added any salt yet, are you saying test before figuring out amount.

    Converting to salt tomorrow? Adjust target levels?

    Good to know! Pretty sure the pool guy that our builder sends over to turn on all the equipment was going to add salt and crank it on tomorrow. We will add salt brush and hold him off for a day.

    Converting to salt tomorrow? Adjust target levels?

    We are finally past our 30 day mark on the new plaster and they are turning on our SWG and adding salt tomorrow. I have been testing with the TF-100 pro kit and keeping our levels based on liquid chlorine and I noticed that the salt water ideal levels are pretty different. So my question is...

    Got my TF pro kit and tested, now what?

    I have downloaded the pool math app but have not input all my info since right now we are operating as a liquid chlorine pool. We can’t turn the salt system on for another week because of the new plaster. So I know I’m going to have to relearn everything then lol but I wanted to make sure we...
