With my new pool pump installed I now control pump run time and SWCG run time independently. I would like to set up the SWCG so that it only runs one cycle reverses polarity and runs another cycle. My search has turned up conflicting information on how much SWCG run time this would require.
It's a new Hayward Aquarite SWCG with a T-15 cell. It's also oversized for the pool so there is no worry of it not generating enough chlorine even on a short daily run time. I was running it 9 hours a day at 20%. I just want it to run on both polarities once daily and be done. My theory is that it will be easier on the unit long term because it will require less power cycles and the controller will be powered fewer hours per day during afternoon lightning.
So, what are the generation cycle times? My research seems to indicate it may be 180 minutes per polarity. Also, if it only runs 180 minutes per day and is then de-powered will it use the opposite polarity the following day?
