You don't say what kind of salt cell you have, I assume a Hayward t-15 from what you have posted. Looking at the manual for that, it says ideal salt level is 2700-3400 ppm. Based on that I would assume the salt cell is working properly and you do in fact have, low salt. I would add enough salt to bring it up to 3000ppm, give it a few days and then try the salt cell again once your testing at 3000ppm.

Yes sorry. T15
Your solution makes sense and seems too easy to be true. Ha!

If your pH is really 9, you should get some acid in there.
