Need help with my one year old autopilot SC-60. I have been testing my chlorine levels over the last month with readings in the 5.5 level for both TC and FC, however these number have jumped off the charts recently. I do not believe it had anything to do with adding borates to the pool.
I took a sample to the pool store today to find my reading have gone to 8.5 TC and FC with CC at 0. I also used the dilution method with the taylor kit to get the same high readings.
I looked over my cell setup and found that my pool volume was set to 29800, however my pool volume is more like 25500. Could this be the cause of the increase in TC/FC?
Here are my current readings..
PH 6.9 (however my taylor kit reads 7.4, so I wonder if it was because it road in the car to work and then to pool store)
Borates 44 (yes I pulled off the muriatic acid and borax, everyone thought I was crazy....)
Salt 2200 (HOWEVER, the auto pilot is reading 2800???)
Any help would be much appreciated.
Other settings are: cell power = 1, purify level = 40%
I have never calibrated the cell as I do not have a salt test kit.
What's the best corrective action? Is the pool safe for kids?
