First, thank you for taking the time to help.
We have a problem. Although it appears our cell (TE-15) is working (1 year old cell), our chlorine level drops quickly to zero.
Here’s a little background.
Our instant salt reading is 3400.
Our pump runs 12 hours per day.
The cell reading: 26V 7A 82deg – No trouble light – set at 90 percent.
Stabilizer level 50
Saturation index 0.3
Last Monday, Aug 21 - Water seemed cloudy so we added 4 gallons of chlorine (12.5%)
We also added ½ gal muriatic acid.
We backwashed - DE filter pressure after backwash 24.
The next day, Aug 22 – the water looked crystal clear. (Thought we beat it)
Today, Aug 29 - our chlorine level is almost zero, water looks cloudy and backpressure is 32.
Really not sure how to proceed?
Could it be a filtration issue? We have model 4820 and use 6 lbs DE. How do we know if something is wrong?
Could it be the cell? How do we know it it actually creating chlorine?
Thanks for your help!!
