Hi. I have a 29,000 gallon inground and installed a SWG yesterday (Circupool RJ 45). According to the installation instructions, I needed to add 30 lbs of salt per 1000 gallons of water and let the pump run for 16 hours before turning on the SWG. I added 840 lbs of salt late yesterday afternoon and installed the equipment. I had an electrician wire it into the pump switch this morning.
I took in a water sample with the following results:
Total Chlorine 0
Salt 2600 ppm
The water temperature was only 64F when tested.
The unit is supposed to run at 3200 ppm. I turned on the heater and an hour or so later, the high salt indicator came on. Could this be because the heater is turned on and the water is warmer when passing through the cell? We were told that the reading of 2600 was low due to the low temp of the water but that it should be in the correct range when it was warmer.
Should I be concerned or just let it run?
Thanks very much for any assistance or advice.
