I've been having quite a bit of issues maintaining the chlorine level. It's an 8 x 10 rectangle that I run for 3 hours on 2100 rpm every day. I've been keeping the chlorinator at 60%. Salt level ranges between 2200 and 2900. I just added about half a bag of salt when it got to 2000 and now it is at 3800.
When I test the chlorine, the first two drops turn it orange.
I've had this happen before but it was after I added some liquid shock because the water started to look like it had some color to it. It eventually drops back to no chlorine. (Maybe 2-3 weeks)
So what am I doing wrong to cause such chlorine Spikes?
I'm sure I'm missing something but for my first year with the pool and hot tub, I had no issues during the summer!
Now that it's just the hot tub, I am feeling like the rookie I am.
I added a cover in the fall too, but I can't imagine that has an impact.
Thanks for the help as always!
