A few weeks ago i got my water tested at a pool store and they told me to add stabilizer. So i did. Now i can't seem to get my chlorine level down to normal. I have a Digital Auto Pilot which WAS set to Power Level 2 at about 25%. I have since dropped it to Power Lever 1 at about 13%. My chlorine seems to still be high.
This year, i also have a solar blanket, which i did not last summer.
I am using the drops in the water technique (with the plastic thingy that has one red side and one yellow). The PH seems to be around 7.4, but the yellow side for chlorine is off the chart. Is it possible that the drops are no longer good, i bought them last summer?
Is there something i'm missing or do i just shut off the salt machine for a day or so to let it lower by itself?
