    How many PPM of Chlorine does T-15 put out?

    I've got an old Aqua Rite T-15 still hooked up from the winter and will replace it with a new one that I have from last summer when it gets warmer and I want to run the pool 8 - 10 hours a day. Right now, I'm just putting bleach in every couple of days and mixing it in the water for a couple of hours. Since nobody's going to get in with water at 74 why run it all day? After checking FC and saw that it was 0.5-1 ppm obviously needed to add some bleach. Decided I would see if the old Aqua Rite worked at all. I've been increasing the salt gradually and it is now about 3,000 ppm checking with Strips and with K-2006. Aqua Rite says it is 1,000 ppm on one side and 2,500 ppm on the other polarity. Check salt lights blinking but not solid so it is generating. I turned it on Super Chlorinate since it will stay on the good (2500) side for 24 hours I believe. I took a water sample directly from the slide where the treated water comes out with no mixing with pool water. DPD says 2.5 ppm coming from the slide. I know my salt needs to be bumped up to 3200 and it might work better and if the water was warmer it might work better. In the mean time I will add a jug of bleach.

    Does anyone know approximately how much chlorine in PPM a Aqua Rite T-15 is supposed to put out under ideal conditions? I've seen the number somewhere but just can't remember. Please help.

    1.45 pounds of chlorine gas per day running 24 hours at 100%.

    PoolMath can tell you how many ppm of FC that is in your sized pool. Use the "effects of adding chemicals" section.

    Approximately how many one gallon bottles of 10% bleach would 1.45 pounds of chlorine gas be? Thanks.

    Use PoolMath to see how many bottles would add the same amount of FC as the 1.45 pounds of chlorine gas

    Can you give me the answer? I've tried that and wasn't sure of the results I was getting.

    FYI, your pool is awfully big for just a T-15

    jblizzle, I told you I was having a problem figuring out the answer. What is this, some kind of test? The purpose of this group is to help, not to intimidate. I'm glad I didn't ask you what a diving board is. Thanks for the answer JamesW.

    I'm sure that he didn't mean it in a bad way. Just trying to show how to use the tools.

    Exactly, we are not here to give you every answer. We are here to teach you a method of pool maintenance.

    Are you planning to ask every time you need to adjust a level?

    If you learn to use the tools, you can do it yourself. To answer your first question required entering 2 numbers into PoolMath, the second question required entering the result of the first question into 1 other place ... was hoping to teach you ...

    The only thing you taught me was that you have no patience for people as intelligent as you. I told you I did not understand how to do it.
