Ever since August of last year, the pool is requiring an excessive amount of salt. I have about a 10,000 gallon pool. I can get the saltwater level up to about 2.9 and then over time it falls requiring me to go out and buy a new bag every month and dump it in. I have tried pouring it into the shallow end, mixing it in a bucket before I pour it in, etc..I have also tried to clean the salt cell mixing with the muriatic acid solution and water.
The pool temperature is about 70 degrees right now. According to my test strips, I do have chlorine in the pool. My ph I keep constantly in the safe zone. I am just not sure why I continue to go through salt. The person at the pool store told me I might have a bad cell. The cell has lasted me about 8 years and is a Jandy Aquapure.
