hello our pool chlorinator keeps comming up low salt 91 no matter how much salt we put in this is frustrating why is this happening ,,,please help

first of all your problem is a few things combined.
First lets learn what consumes chlorine
Heat,sun,rain,sun tan oil 3 of swimmers
you may need to run your generator 12 hours some nights it all depends on what kind of day it was and what the chlorine was to start with
Also if you do not have your salt as close to 3000ppm as you can then you are also not generating enough chlorine even if you are not triggering an alarm for low salt
you can not be below 2800 and no higher than 3800ppm
a test kit is available get the strips that reads #'s not the color strips for salt reading
Also you should be using a chlorine stabilizer to help hold the chlorine level this is only a help situation. it will not completly remidy your chlorine level going low if all the elements I mentioned are happening at the same time
Also be carefull not using the pool that is the worst thing you can do. You may go green quick without people in it stiring it up
I also recommend you use a non foaming algaecide every 5-7 days just follow directions for your gallons of water
By the way bromine tests are really not for pools they are designed to work with the hot water and chlorine level of a hot tub
your ph is fine, about in the middle alkalinity is what drives your ph so worry about the ph level and chlorine and you are good to go

IMHO, stay what ever setup you have. It it is salt with a working cell, stay salt as salt is cheaper. If it is CL, you will have possibly add the cell and power supply needed to turn the salt into CL. CL is cheaper than the equipment you may have to add.
How big is your pool? If you use salt, you will have to keep the level between 2800 and 3200 PPM and you will have to add cynauric acid to protect your freshly made CL. If you use dry CL, that normally comes with built in cyanuric acid. Salt water in your back yard will not be good for your grass ... just a thought. Salt will also attack all metal near by. But on the other hand, CL will also attack metal. Salt and CL are very closely related.
I wouldn't invest a lot of $ to convert from one to the other ... these devices don't necessarily have a long life. When what ever you have quits you will have to buy new ... decide which system you want at that time. BTW ... remember, you are currently using "free" equipment. Why make it 'expensive'?
Further questions? Post to this comment which will generate a e-mail to me to come back ... OK?

Testimonial: "thanks alot, you surely gave me alot of information. I think that I'll stick with what I have."
SOURCE: my pool is cloudy I
How long has it been since you cleaned the cartridge in the filter? If it's been a while, I'd recommend cleaning it thoroughly with a filter cleaner (degreaser). This will help to filter out any small particles that can cause cloudiness. I'd also recommend that you increase the salt production on your salt system. The normal range for chlorine is 1-3 ppm. You're too low at 0.2. If all of these things are done and the pool is still cloudy, I would add a clarifier. FYI: too much is not better when adding clarifier!

You should always follow the instructions on the manual .. I have a 18X33X4 oval and had to start with over 350 lbs of salt and ran the pump without the chlorinator for 24 hours to properly disolve the salt. Then, I started with 12 hrs pump cycle with 10 hrs of chlorination in between the 12 hrs. Keep checking the chlorine level and adjust time from there. Currently at temperatures of 85 to 100, I run the system at 10 hrs pump with 8 hrs chrlorinator and water is Crystal Clear... In the 2 years with the intex system, I have not added any chemicals to my pool. I once had an issue when the water level went low while I was on vacation, when I came back, the chrolinator had turned off due to low flow and my pool water was green.. As soon as I re-started the cycle, a few days later, Crystal Clear again... NO CHEMICALS OR SHOCK added.... Hope this helps....
