I drained about 1/3 of the pool out on Friday due to Calcium Hardness, so after filling I decided to check salt level for the first time since installed at the end of April this year. I got a reading of 5.8 or 3730. I also decided to bring a water sample to the pool store to get readings from them and they actually showed 2800. Now since refilling the pool the Intellichlor is showing orange saying to check levels.
I figured maybe I was not reading the test right so I went with the pool store and added 20lbs of salt. Checked it this evening after running for 24hrs and light is still showing check and when reading the strip it was showing maybe 5.9, but basically about the same reading I had before. I know I shouldn't use the Cell for readings, but it showed fine before draining and I guess I just don't know what reading to go with or what I may be doing wrong.
CYA 10 (pool store reading - I thought I had 20 when I tested and in the process of adding through sock in skimmer)
CH 273 (saturday pool store reading - I had 320 when I did the test)
All tests above with exception of CH and CYA are done this evening.
