Test for Cyanuric Acid, this is what causes "Chlorine Lock" however, usually you have the opposite result. High test readings, with no positive effect. The only way to correct this is to physically drain water from the pool and add new. The best way to avoid this problem in the future is to buy higher grade chlorine and shock.

What is the difference between total residual chlorine and free chlorine?

Basically total clorine in a pool is the total clorine that is in the pool (even the part that has been used to oxidize various contaminants). Free clorine is the total amount of clorine available to be used as an oxidizing agent. In a clean pool these amounts should be the same but as a pool accumulates contamanents the amount of total clorine will be higher than free clorine. It is best to shock the pool to eliminate all contaminants and get the total and free clorine levels back in balance.
