i'm a lil confused i had a cya of 20ppm i put in 4# of cya yesterday and 4-5hrs later had it tested it was 50ppm. today had it tested and it was 30ppm. i have had no loss of water and did not add any. and swg has not been running well maby a few 5min cycles. i dont know if i read it correctly but does the swg consume your cya?
phosphates:200 is this ok i know it needs to be at 100 but what will it do at 200
also i added 4 40# bags of salt last night around 9pm and today the aquacheck strip said i have 2890ppm (the pool store confirmed that with 2900ppm thay have an electronic reader) my swg unit said i had 2100ppm and would not generate. I added 20# of salt 3hrs ago and strip says 3140ppm. the unit says 2300ppm. is that normal to be that different from the strips? i only ran the swg for the summer 2 years ago when i bought it last year i did not have time to take care of a pool.
i kinda need advice on what to do with the ta and ph. i read what i need to do but i guess it would just make me feel better to hear someone say how it needs to be done with my situation.
