HAving trouble getting pool to retain chlorine. Water is clear. decided to let pool store test and compare numbers. Said my salt was only 2200 but my Iauqalink is showing 2900 ? Generator is running at 85% for 12 hours per day and doesnt seem to be able to keep up


FC-1

G,

With a CYA of 40 and an FC of only 1, I would assume you have algae whether you can see it or not... You need to do an OCLT... Overnight Chlorine Loss Test

As a side note... never take the SWCG's reported salt as anything other than a "guess"... I suggest that you get your own salt test kit... the Taylor K-1766 is the one I use.

Thanks,

Jim R.
