I haven't had free chlorine in my pool for 2 years bc my SWG was broken. I just bought a pentair intellichlor SWG and have been seeing nothing but green lights for 3 days. The guy in the lab said " add 4lbs of shock, and run your chlorinator at Super Boost for for 48 hours", which I did. An unbelievably, my chlorine levels dropped (except my CC, which increased) My stabilizer levels are good too. I just got my water tested after the 48 hours and all my levels are good except my chlorine:
My pool is a 24,000 gallons with a D.E filter..
The company that installed the SWG said not to listen to the store because as long as the green lights on the intellichlor are on, chlorine is being produced. They said that since it is a salt water pool free chlorine isn't going to show up on the the tests, but they assured me that chlorine is being produced at the cell.
The store doesn't sound right bc I don't understand how I can shock my pool and run the SWG on super boost for 48 hours and the chlorine levels to drop except the CC.
The pool company that installed my SWG confused me bc I feel the FC should be coming up on a reading.
All in all, the pool is crystal clear and it seems like the machine is running fine. What is your take on this?
