Hey guys, just moved into a new house with an inground pool and it is a SWG pool.
We have been here for 2 days and I got around to testing the water today. The previous owner said she "Got the pool ready to swim". I had been smelling a cholrine smell and figured it was high.
My results were using the TK-100 test kit:
FC- I got to 40 drops (20 chorline level) and it still hadnt turned the solution clear
TA- I got to 20 drops and still hadnt turned the solution pink
At this point I stopped testing.
I turned off the generator completely (it was operating at 40%).
Does a salt water pool cause "different" test results or should it all be the same as a traditional pool?
Any recommendations on getting the cholrine levels down? I dont want them so high because we cant use the pool and I dont want it to destroy the equipment. The previous owner said she "Added 40lbs of salt last week".
With the PH in balance and no algae etc, should the cholrine level be the first I need to get under control before worrying about TA, CH etc?
Also any way to figure out the pool volume? The previous owner had no clue.....
I appreciate any help.
