I have cut teh pump time down to 5 hours a day and the water is nic eand clear.

    You need to measure how much CYA is in your pool. The amount of CYA will determine what chlorine level you need to maintain. Give Pool School a read then read it again and it will start to make sense.

    Forget about the dial. What are your CYA, FC and CC readings? These readings are the only thing that is going to tell you if you're producing enough chlorine.

    Edit: Another reason to ignore the numbers on the dial: when the amount of sun hitting your pool changes, you're going to have to adjust the amount of chlorine output. It'll change from month to month.
