wondered if anyone to could help me?
As of this morning my SWG pool has the following chemical balance (using a Taylor K2006 kit)
FC - 1ppm
CC - 0.5 or less
pH - 7.4
TA - 90ppm
CH - 125ppm
CYA - 60ppm
Salt - 4300
CC - this test shows just a hint of pink in the tube doing 10ml test and clears with 1 drop of reagent.
My problem - I keep having to add slow release chlorine tablets to the basket to raise the FC levels to around 3 -4 (approx 5-6 soap size tablets per week)
The pool is situated in South West France and although the temp has been very low recently as well as raining, we finally have a summer which is now in the mid 90s, so should I be concerned?
Could it be that my chlorine producing cells have failed and is there a way to check this? I have never put the chlorinator into the high production position as the pool installation man (3 yrs ago) suggested that this was the quickest way to shorten the life of the cells.
Any help would be much appreciated so thank you.
