    Welcome to the forum!

    Start in Pool School. There is an article on common abbreviations. Just read down those articles, particularly, the ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry. More will start to make sense and it will generate more question. Ask away. We'll help as much as you need.

    Chlorine is a consumable item that needs constant replenishment. If your SWG is not producing enough, it will disappear during the day. From your test results, I assume you cannot test for CYA, is that correct? What are you testing with?

    Please put as much info about your pool as you can in your sig. Look at others for examples....there's an article in Pool School, also.

    Welcome to TFP!!

    If your chlorine is being depleted by day's end you need to add more (as Duraliegh alluded to). With your salt system (SWCG) it's as simple as turning up the output However, you do need to take stabilizer into account and reading Pool School will certainly help you figure out what you already know vs. what you need to ask about

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D
