    Saltwater Chlorinator Not producing enough Chlorine

    I just installed a Circupool RJ45 this year. How long does it take to get FC levels up from 0-4? I turned the chlorinator on for the first time yesterday. I put it at 15% since my pool is only 18,000 gallons and this one is for a larger pool. I left it running for 24 hrs and checked levels when I got home. FC was only at .5. I filed it olio to 50% and let it go for an hour or so and it was still only at .5. What could be the issue here? My test results are below.

    FC- .5
    CC- .5
    PH- 7.3-7.5
    TA- 60
    CH- 425
    CYA- 50
    Salt- 3800
    - 18,000 Gallons, In Ground, Concrete/Plaster
    - Jandy Cartridge Filter Model #CL460, Jandy Pump Model #JHPU1.5 2 speed
    - installed in 2007

    hey there, SWG keep your FC at a level, it will take too much time to get it up to 5FC.. add bleach to 5 FC then run your pump 8 hours on 50% and see if it keeps it there.. if it starts to drop either add more time or up the % on the SWG

    Also, your CYA is low at 50, try taking CYA to 70, it will make it easier for the SWG to keep up..
