So for now, I am manually dosing with 8.25% chlorine about half a gallon two days a week. I know that adding chlorine adds salt to my pool, and I eventually want to switch to a SWG. So I got to thinking about switching to a SWG without having to add any salt first. How long would I have to manually dose with chlorine to get my salt level at about 3800?
Using poolmath, it says if I add 80 oz. of 8.25% it will raise my FC by 3.5 and my salt by 5.8. (15000 gallon pool). I am assuming that is 5.8 ppm, so 3800 divided by 5.8 is 655 doses. I dose 2X per week, so that would be 328 weeks. Is my math correct? So that would be 6.3 years before my salt level is good?!?!
