SSIIM2: constant continuity residual

I have more or less the same problem as student2008 in the thread
and can't solve it: I am simulating a straight river over a chute with SSIIM2. While all residuals become very small after some time, the continuity residual first oscillates and than stabilizes at a constant value (namely 52.2).
The sum of all the water inflow and outflow in the geometry is very low.
first I tried to lower the relaxation factors, however, this did not help anything.
in student 2008's thread people are talking about local scaling, so I scaled the residual taking the largest absolute value in the first five iterations as denominator (following the instructions described on
)- however, the maximum value in the first five iterations is not very high and my scaled residual reaches a value of 0.5 which is not very good neither....
furthermore: why taking the largest number in the first five iterations? is this just some random presumption??
as my understanding of cfd does not reach very far, I would be pleased if you could tell me a possible reason why my residual stabilizes (???)
attached I send you a graph of my residuals
thank you so much!
