If you have excessive calcium in your pool the calcium will solidify on your titanium plates. Look for little bits of white scale (looks like paint chips) in the pool usually by the outflow. To fix, unplug the chlorinator, remove the inflow and outflow hoses from the chlorinator, also remove the flow meter (piece of pipe that has the wire attached to it. Look in at the titanium plates. If it has white calcium coating it, then flush with the hose till it all comes off, if it doesn't come off remove that piece of PVC and soak in vinegar (haven't had to do that but thats what the manual says). Manuall says to drain 25% of your pool and refill with fresh water but I elected to just keep cleaning it out when the alarm went off untill all the calcium in the water turned to solid (had to clean 3 or 4 times). Be sure and vacuum up the calcium in the pool.

your pump has nothing to do with chlorine generation.
You need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not colors.
Now get your salt to 3000ppm or as close to it as you can.
The amount of salt reccomended in the manual is just a starting point
any lower than 2800 and you will not produce enough sanitizer and over 3600 and your pool can go cloudy, taste bad, and rust metal parts

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Have you checked your water for acid levels to ensure you have enough to maintain your chlorine level? Adding stabilizer (cyanuric acid) helps the chlorine remain in the water longer and if you had to replace much of the water since your chlorine levels were OK you need to add more stabilizer to keep the chlorine in the pool. Have you altered the amount of time the pump runs too? An erosion feeder like yours only adds chlorine when the filter system is running. If you have scaled back the amount of time the equipments runs you will also be adding less chlorine over time than you previously had.
