Hello - I recently had an in-line CMP Power Clean Ultra tab chlorinator installed in my new pool. My PB talked me into putting ozone in (long story) and had suggested just putting the chlorine tabs in the skimmer basket. I did not want to do that so he installed the chlorinator. The unit has a dial from o to 1 with 0.5 in the middle. I started the unit up per the instructions and made sure that the chamber was filled with water and set the dial at 0.5 (halfway) to get a calibration on the feed rate.
I currently have my pump and filter running 4 hours a day until the weather warms up. I am currently checking my chemistry every few days and noticed that my chlorine level kept dropping. I think the chlorinator may be vapor locking when the pump shuts off. When I go out and look at the chlorinator when the pump is running - the water level is very low. I still have flow going through the site tube, but the chlorinator has very little water in it. I have had 6-3in tabs in there for about 1.5 weeks and only 1 tab is about 3/4 dissolved.
A few questions:
1. Is the chlorinator supposed to stay filled with water when the pump is running
2. Any idea about what the dial settings correspond to as far as chlorine level in the pool?
Thanks in advance for your help
