Hi everyone. I have a new pool, 35,000 gal, in ground, concrete/tile. I'm looking at getting a SWG like the Jandy Aquapure Ei but I have a few questions I hope you can help me with...
I'm in the country so I need to fill the pool with my well water which has a calcium hardness of 1,100ppm. No, that's not a typo. I'm in the Yucatan in Mexico, the ground is all limestone and the water is crazy hard. (also, the water has 3,200ppm of saline - just about right for the SWG) So, question 1 - will the calcium cause scale or damage the generator? How often will I need to replace the cell?
I have a Hayward variable speed pump which leads to question 2 - Is there a minimum flow rate for these SWGs? Do they work well with variable speed pumps?
The cost of power down here is very high so, question 3 - how much power do these units use? I can't find the info on the websites for the generators.
Thanks in advance for your help.
