I have a salt water chlorine generator with a T-9 cell. When producing chlorine I get bubbles coming out of my return jets and the bubbles rise to the surface. If I turn off the SWG the bubbles go away. When I turn the SWG back on, the bubbles return. I have linked a video showing the bubbles. Is this normal? Is it a sign that I'm losing my chlorine to the air?

Thank you! Two local pool service companies were clueless. One was sure I had an air leak.

Well, I guess that should give you some data on the technical knowledge those ‘service’ companies have.
