I have a Jandy Salt system that I purchased in 2012. Replaced the Cl generator about 4 years ago (I'm guessing). We lost our bamboo in the Houston freeze and now the pool is getting a lot more sun. I had been running the pool with 50% Cl for about 8 hr daily. We were gone for 9 days and the pool turned green. I have tried running the pool with 100% Cl for last 4 days and am still not showing Cl on test kit. The RS8 shows 100% generation, 2700 salt, no service light, flow, .....etc. The separate in-line module going to the salt cell shows power and appears normal.
I read that in some cases if the algae gets established that it will "quench" the Cl and that a big "chlorine shock" is needed.
Is it likely that the Cl generator is working properly based on all the indicators I've listed above.
