High salt alarm

Hi I'm new , I have a 12x36 1,779 gallon pool. I bought a SWG with a built in 2000 gallon filter. My problem is that when I try to adjust the PH and put in baking soda that the high salt alarm goes off. Also when I tested it through the aqua chem test kit with the droppers it tells me that everything is fine, when I used a strip it said there was no chlorine and the PH was off the chart. After the saltwater cycle the chlorine is usually a little high. Is this normal or I do have too much salt?? I can go without running it for a day and its right on the money. So my two questions are : can putting in baking soda to up my PH affect the high salt alarm??
Which of the two test kits are the most accurate, the strips or the dropper??

I have found out that baking soda actually raises the ph level you need to add ph minus. Take a water sample to your neighborhood pool place and they can tell you exactly what you need to add to bring down the levels
