Hi all, Looking for someone who might know if this is significant regarding my AquaRite Panel--little history, new pool/SWG Turbo Cell T3, Aquarite panel this summer (July). Had an algae problem for MONTHS chlorine ALWAYS registerd 0. I found this site and I quickly cleared up my pool with SLAM (with bleach) and now know how to maintain with my Taylor kit Pool looks awesome! Heck with the pool store!
I did post this forum post a week or so ago because after a successful SLAM I was back down to 0 FC! and feeling confused? SWG /pump running 8 hrs a day at 50% , then up to 100% output still 0 FC
I SLAM'ed again just to be sure I didn't misread something and passed all 3 tests for sure including overnight loss.
Current readings at noon today(Full sun on pool all day until about 4PM)
CYA 80 ish maybe closer to 90 (I know slightly high)
I currently have my SWG at 100% output for 8 hours and chlorine seems to be dropping faster than I think it should. Im shooting to keep around 6 but cant keep it there without adding bleach. Also, Its been a LONG time since we have had to add salt--It doesn't seem to be using much/any salt.
So...here is my technical question (I do IT for a living so Im very detailed)-In stepped through the diagnostic panel here are my numbers
1. 58-pool temp brrrr
2.cell voltage 29.5
3. cell current 2.24
4. output 100P
5. Insta. salin -3200
7. r1.59 software rev.
8. t-3 which is correct I have the T3 turbo cell.
3200 on panel salt reading
Seems like my voltages/current are off from what the manual I have says are the normal ranges. Does anyone know if this is significant? Just trying to figure out why it seems like we are not producing chlorine.
Manual states that "voltage would be 22.0-25 when generating otherwise 30-35"
current would be "4.5-7.8 when generating, otherwise 0"
I plan on calling the manufacturer if after a week I am still not keeping chlorine-(Im not adding any more bleach currently) in this pool as I know its not organic issue at this point.
