I made a bit of a mathamalogical error in my salt/bags/weight/volume calculation and as opposed to topping my salt levels off at 3500ppm I nuked it to 4400ppm :shock: :oops:

I know it will gradually come back down on it's own but what damage am I doing in the mean time?

Thanks pooladdict - My SWCG is humming along beautifully, in fact it was working so well that it was my rocketing FC that prompted me to test the salt level. :-D

I was concerned that the high salt level would start to rust/corrode small children or more important things like heater coils... etc... :wink:

Salt level should not be a problem. In fact, there are several SWGs on the market that normally operate in the 5000-6000 ppm range for salt. Above 6000 ppm corrosion becomes more of an issue.
