If its too high you have to dump water and replace it with fresh water be carefull to work out how much water you need to replace you wouldn't want to have to do it again.
If the pool drain goes into the public sewers ensure there are no local rules affecting such discharge, or that you have the necessary consent.
Nothing you just wait for it to go down. if you have a salt water pool there is usually an aadjustment to reduce the chlorine level,
You can buy salt test stripes at any local pool store or have them check it for you.
Yes you can. The question is not about the salt is about whether your pool is sanitary or not and that has to do with your chlorine level mostly.
No, the reason you have to have a certain amount of salt in a pool, is for disinfecting and cleaning reasons.I own a salt water pool and the salt level is not always correct, but I notice no difference. We also have pool guys and they handle the salt with no gloves.
the high level tide pool
You are getting false readings because of the extreme high levels of chlor. k
High chlorine levels will make the pH in your pool high. You can add borates to help stabilize the pH level in your pool.
It's length of time depends on how high your agility level is, there is no accurate time however.
Count your blessings, free water. If you have a salt water pool you are better of hanging on to it because if you dump you weaken the salt in the pool. If you feel that you need to have the skimmer working properly which is important in keeping pools clean you could get a floating pool skimmer which will work whether the water is high or low. Regardless of what you do evaporation will soon bring the water level down again.
mabye cause the people that go in the pool (WARNING= dont drink pool water
The ideal salt level is between 2700-3400 ppm (parts per million) with 3200 ppm being optimal. Before adding salt to your pool, test the water to check your salt level.
If you are adding salt to a salt water pool with a salt water chlorination system and the TDS level does not go up then the problem probably lies with the chlorination system not working (the electrolysis unit or power supply). Adding salt directly to the pool will increase the TDS (Total Dissolved Salts) concentration of the water.
