    SWG not keeping up

    I am just like everyone else and it just dawned on me this morning answering another post...

    Symptoms: Curcupool SJ45 not creating enough chlorine to stay at 6 FC, last year worked just fine at 50% and July/Aug at 75%... this year at 100% and 12 hours a day not keeping up,

    FC 6 (adding bleach as needed to keep up)
    CC 0.0/0.5 depending on cover on or off
    CH 130
    TA 50
    PH 7.4
    CYA 80
    ***** salt**** it was 3500 at start of season and I have not checked again till today

    Emptied between 5000 and 6000 gallons due to rain over the past 2 months

    checked salt level today and I am at 1500 PPM

    Now I really love the curcupool, it should not even be close to keeping it at 6FC but it has been really close and still creating chlorine

    time to grab 300 pounds of salt
