    SALT reading using Aquacheck Strips very low

    I guess my salt strips were not that bad. With the k-1766 test it came at 1800ppm. I added 3 40lbs bags. I’ll check the reading in a few days.

    SALT reading using Aquacheck Strips very low

    Is it possible? My strips are coming very low around 1680 but still my SWG is still running and no warning. Couple months ago the strips were coming back with 2930 and I though it was ok giving that they are not that accurate. The strips are brand new. Weird.

    Jandy Nicheless LED Lights and iAqualink Integration

    No luck then... I have another question.. is it possible for those Jandy Nicheless LED lights to go bad for one particular color while all others work normally. I have my spa pool light very dim when I select the white version.. while other colors are very bright (same as the pool lights).

    6 weeks old Pool - Test Results

    One last questiom about stabilizer.. best to use a sock in the skimmer? Or can I pour the product directly on the skimmer without using a sock? I have seen youtube videos with both options. I have a cartridge filter.
