    Thanks, thats how I felt at the time. I decided I would clean the cell to remove that excuse and call them back out. Now I have more grounds to support my concerns with the cell.

    IC40 Salt Reading 9900

    My IC40 salt level has been creeping up almost weekly. I have repeatedly tested my salt level with my TF100 and I am constantly in the mid 3000s. Is this something I should worry about?

    Hello all, pebble pool completed in January 2022, is there any reason not to add Borates this soon? Is there an optimum timeframe or temperature threshold I should wait for? Additionally, can I store granular boric acid, CYA, calcium chloride and salt outside in the same deck box?
