I have 2 minor frustrations about my salt water pool....
Some of the numbers from my test kit (the "big" TFP kit, 6mo old) disagree with the local pool store's numbers.
Pool store / Test Kit
Alk: 70 / 90
CH: 280 / 420
CYA: 59 / 90
who do I believe? I ran the test kit 3 times, it is consistant. The CH and CYA are big differences! All tests were run within an hour of each other.
The pool will not get past 0.5ppm CL.
CYA is 80, salt 3500, pH 7.5ish, CC is 1, Pump/cell runs 6hrs a day on MAX output setting, the cell is clean and generates plenty of bubbles. Water is clear and awesome but no CL?? Any way to test or validate the cell's operation? I read the manual (Zodiac LM Clearwater) and all tests are good, the cell thinks it OK.
I threw a 'smart stick' in a skimmer basket last night to try to get the CL up a bit.
