Hello everyone, I'm new here but not entirely new to pool maintenance. I bought my 16' Intex UltraFrame pool last summer, and had no real issues with it. This year, the SWG did not work immediately after setup, and the water had no chlorine in it for about a week. After cleaning the electrolytic cell with vinegar, the SWG started generating chlorine. I know this because testing water that comes right out of the pump while running indicates free chlorine. HOWEVER, testing the water in the pool reveals no free chlorine, and no total chlorine (which makes zero sense to me). How can I restore balance? Here are my test results:
FC - 0 ppm
CC - 0 ppm
pH - 7.0
TA - 150 ppm
CH - I have a DPD test kit, I don't think I can measure this; can I?
CYA - I have not added any stabalizer (perhaps I should, but haven't). I also do not have a test kit for this.
