Salt water pool -Low total Bromine - low freechlorine

My pool uses a chlorinator and it is showing 100% so there's enough salt in it but I am getting very very low Total Bromine and Total Chlorine readings. What can I do to raise them please

Perhaps there's a high chlorine demand, in other words something is eating up all the chlorine. You may need to shock.

You are creating chlorine so don'worry about the bromine reading as it does not apply to you.

Shocking the pool to establish a chlorine residual is a good idea and maintina the level with your salt chlorinator.
