This is my first pool and I have only been maintaining it for about a month. I have consistently high chlorine, pH, AD an TA. The salt level is around 3300-3450 ppm.
I keep adding acid to help. A few days ago I turned the SWG off for a day and now I am running the pump for (2) 3 hour periods with a 7 hour break in the middle. I also reduced the Chlorine generation from 20% to 15% but I still have high readings although the Chlorine is now starting to be in an acceptable range at around 3.0. The pH is still over 8 (never changes) and the Acid Demand is down to 3 from a high of 5. The TA ranges from 120-140.
My test readings seem to be consistent with the local pool store readings.
I usually add around a quart of acid but the acid demand doesn't seem to change whether I add the acid daily or weekly.
Any advice on what to do would be appreciated.
