I just received test kit today (TF-100).
This is the first year we are trying a saltwater chlorinator (because it came with
our 12' x 24' x 52" deep, 8,000 gallon Intex rectangular pool).
We have been running the chlorinator for about a week now for 6 hours per day--the
recommended amount of time for the number of gallons our pool holds.
I also purchased the sodium chloride test (salt) and that registered at
5.8 (3,520 ppm) which is at the top of where the saltwater level should be,
according to Intex so I think I have, pretty much, the correct level of salt
in the water.
My other test numbers were....interesting:
FC: 0 (the water never did turn pink--remained clear.
T/A: 130-140 (First time using the test kit and wasn't sure how "red" the water had to get).
CH: 0 (the color red never appeared after adding the R-0011L)
CYA: 0 (The black dot was always present, although it did get slightly smaller in size).
I would appreciate any advice you can give here. I guess I was thinking that the SWG was going to simply do everything but by the reading I have already done here on the forums, my dream has been crushed....
Where do I go from here?
