I put the mineral and smartchlor in once the tub was at temp.

The ph and alkalinity were pretty low to start and took me a couple days to get up and level, would that have affected it that much? Also, calcium hardness was very low at 50ppm, but I waited a week or so to adjust that to 150 rpm. Alkalinity is like 120ish and ph probably around 7.4-6 last time I checked. Test strips for @ease were showing completely white on top part that says to replace smartchlor, so I started dosing with granular chlorine after every use now. Brand new to this so any advice is welcome!

One more question for you.  Do you have a circulation pump or do you use one of the main pumps to filter water?  If main pump what are your filter settings set for?

Low pH will cause the SmartChlor cartridge to dissolve quicker.  I also don't believe hardness will have anything to do with that.  Your hot tub is 550 gallons, in my opinion, you would be lucky to get 3 weeks out of a cartridge.

I didnít realize your tub was 550 gallons. Agree with you would be lucky to get a couple weeks out of each cartridge. Thatís a big tub!
