Hello....New tub owner (was a new tub)

I have read everything i can find, including bromine 3 step and have followed it to a tee. I started with MSP shock, and have just now switched to liquid bleach. I have a Taylor test kit as well, but started with aquacheck strips.

I have all the water looking good on everything except bromine reserve. No matter what i do, i cant get the reserve to hold more than 2-2.5. When i shock, the level goes up, then stabilizes at 2-2.5. I am using a floater and currently have it set to 11, and still wont raise bromides. We have 2 adults, and 1 child using it 30 min each day at night.

Any ideas?
