Anyone have any experience with NexaChlor chlorine generator. http://www.spaandpoolstore.com/nexa-chlor.html
I am a pool newbie, so this forum has been a great help to me, especially Pool School.
We have had our 18' above ground round pool for one year, so this is our second partial summer of use. About two weeks ago, I left the solar blanket off of the pool for about 3 or 4 consecutive days for swimmers' convenience while I was at work. The FC levels kept dropping so I adjusted the timer so my NexaChlor chlorine generator would run 24/7, but FC still dropped to near 0.
Then last Thursday we had a huge rain fall and the pool turned very cloudy. First time for my, so I used the information posted on this forum and the pool calculator to remedy the water. 6 gallons of 10% bleach solution and 1 week later, the water is crystal clear, but FC is still 0. The chlorine generator is still producing "smoke" in the water, but FC just won't come up I have been running the circulation pump 24/7 all summer. What should I do or what is going on?
Here are the chemistry values.
Alkalinity 140 ppm
Hardness 200 ppm
CYA 80 ppm
Salt 3000 ppm
Water temp 90 degrees
