    New CircuPool Si30 plus

    this past weekend, we installed the New CircuPool Si30 plus. It's running, the control panel shows that the cell has current and that it is generating chlorine, but we have NO chlorine. Yesterday we put two gallons of bleach in to try to get the level up. We added the second gallon after we tested and saw no chlorine at all. After the second gallon had a chance to circulate, we added a shock treatment and left the pump running overnight. This chlorine. The CYA is a little high, but it has been much higher and we still had chlorine. We are gradually draining the pool and getting it lower. The phosphates were at 800 yesterday. We have been treating it with a phosphate remover from the pool store.

    Here are my current levels:

    Total Chlorine: 0
    FC: 0
    pH: 7.5
    TA: 175
    CYA: 110
    Salt: between 3500 and 4000 (depending on where you read it!)
    Phosphates: 800 (yesterday, before treatment)
    Pool temp: 86 degrees

    Sounds like you have algae consuming your chlorine. You need to get the CYA down and then SLAM the pool.

    Not a fool proof method but one that may ease your mind. Try grabbing a sample of water right at the discharge point in your pool. Cover the top of the testing gauge with your thumb, put it on the return flow, then open thumb slowly to fill with fresh discharge water. Then test for chlorine. You will not get a useful measurement for how your pool stands, but you will get some indication as to whether the generator is putting out chlorine.
