I will be installing my SWG.

Here are my numbers as of now. Do I need to modify anything?

Salt a little high, but within range. The Manufaturer says 3500 is best.

FC 4.0
CC <.50
TC 4.5
PH 7.3
TA 90
CH 220
CYA 80
temp 84 degrees F
Salt Taylor k-1766 = 4400 Aquachek white strip = 3820

I think I am good to go.

Anything I need to change?

Your FC is too low for your CYA without the generator being installed yet. 4 is the minimum when it's up and running.

The only thing I see is you might want to bring your TA down a little over time to keep the PH from raising so fast with the SWG. Mine works better around 70 TA but all pools are different.

I just did the drop test again, and this time the reading was 3800 right on the aquachek strip reading of 3820. The original drop test I did yesterday was my first with the K-1766 kit and apparently not correct.
