I did a lot of reading on this fabulous site and followed the SLAM method to clean up my pool. I was very excited when I finally got the algae removed, water clear, and my pool was actually giving me more than a 0 chlorine reading. I also added dry stabilizer in a sock, but I still had the chlorine back to a 0 within about 2 days. I recently cleaned my Hayward salt cell, but there is still an indicator light showing. Initial questions:
How do I know if my salt cell needs to be replaced?
If the salt cell is broken, does that explain why I am losing chlorine so fast?
I have had a pool for about 5 years now, but I am just starting to educate myself and get away from the pool store approach : )
