I also have that problem...lol. It was showing 3100 and even when I ran the dia. test it also showed the same readings. After resetting everything same problem. After taking it to have it checked to two different compamies it was really 3800. You would think the cost of this product it should at least give a right reading.The reading of the volts and amp draw was right. At first I thought I had a bad cell, but lucky for me it wasn't. I am a HVAC Tech and we have to depend on our equiment or meters to give us the correct reading. In the case of this product you really can't depend on any of the reading to be right.

Our generator salt readings were consistently low compared with our pool supply store readings, and too low for the generator to work. I was more interested in correcting salt than adding muriatic acid, etc. so I could get my chlorine up. Then I gave up and decided I needed to chlorinate by bottle instead of generator so we could use the pool. Several of my readings were off. As I corrected with acid, the salt reading on my chlorine generator started to go up. Also, it seems like the generator can't go from zero to appropriate chlorine. I needed to add bottled chlorine and then the generator kept it at the right level. This has been very frustrating.
