I first noticed my pool was getting cloudy and started the process of finding the issue with checking the chemicals. Everything seemed to be in balance but the chlorine was low. The pool was also starting to get some algae. What I noticed was the jets were putting out a white cloudy discharge. I discovered it was air by catching the output into a clear jar. Sure enough it was micro fine bubbles. I started to trouble shoot the air as a leak somewhere on the vacuum side of the pump. Checked all of the valves, connections, pipe joints..... The pump was starting to make some noise so I rebuilt the pump and replaced all of the gaskets (pump is quieter but still have clouds of air in the jets). Finally I found that the bubbles are not there when the SWG is off. It is producing enough of the bubbles that it will take the water from crystal clear to so cloudy that you can't see the bottom step in about 30 minutes.
The cell (Tcell-15) is about 5 years old and using the diagnostics in the controller, is running fine. I again tested the pool for chlorine and it seems very low. I tested with water collected directly in front of the jet and it was only .75!!
1) Cell does not seem to be producing enough chlorine.
2) Tinny bubbles.
Before dumping the money to buy a new cell, I thought it would best to get some advice
