Dang, that means the reading on my aquarite is about 1000 off... it shows 1600 on the display. Maybe it will be more accurate in the morning. I just installed it today, I'm sure it needs more than a few hours to adapt.
I just noticed that someone on my previous thread told me to leave the salt system off for a day or two while everything mixes properly. I think the vast majority of the salt has dissolved based on the test strips and what I could see earlier.
I turned Wanda (Zodiac MX-6) lose on the new salt earlier today and watched it all dissolve in the leaf canister.
