I recently moved to a property with a salt water chlorine generator. I replaced the cell about a month ago. The chlorine production is very low (0.5 ppm). There are no error messages on the display.
16000 gallon in ground pool - marsite
Digital Pool Pilot
Pent air Sand filter
The pump runs every day for 9 hours. The display shows the following:
Power level 2
Purifier at 100% (always runs at 100%)
The water test shows the following:
Free Chlorine 0.5
Ph 8.0 (added 1 quart of Muriatic acid)
Acid demand 3
Total alkalinity 100ppm
Calcium hardness 235ppm
Total dissolved solids 3900ppm
I am a novice, but it seems all ok to me so why is the chlorine production so low? The kit shows a different salt level than the pool pilot, but would this be a problem?
The water is slightly cloudy, but has not turned green although when I brush each week there is a very light green mist.
All suggestions greatly appreciated. Also, should I shock the pool each week with a salt water chlorine generator? If so, with liquid or powder?
Many thanks in advance
