hello everyone, i'm new to the forum and was referred here from a pool building forum (gardenweb) by numerous members on that site. i did take time to read pool school and it gave me crazy head. but after reading through it again it made considerably more sense. brief history, pool was completed around the 1st of february and started up, salt was added after 6 days to my dismay and concern but luckily no issue have arose with our pebblesheen interior. we had pool school in the middle of february and i took a water sample to the local leslies pool supplies to have it tested since i did not have my test kit (TF100) in hand. the first full test was completed on the 28th of february and i have since gave it the full test twice since then. here are the results of all test and dates they were completed: also i have tested the chlorine and PH at least 5 times each week.
FAC .5 (added 4 lbs of shock)
03/10 (test completed by me)
salinity 3450 (reading from remote)
03/22 (tested by me)
salinity 3600 (reading from remote)
the FC seems to be a bit high as there are times where i can actually smell the chlorine. the SWG is set at 60% and although we had some cooler weather over the weekend, temps have been in the 60's for the past couple of weeks. do i need to lower the % in the SWG to get the chlorine level down or is this reading ok?
anything else jump out at you that i need to address immediately?
thanks everyone for your feedback and look forward to any responses good or bad that i may get!
