    How long will it take SWG to get the chlorine up

    Pool was looking mucky.
    SWG clean light going off.
    Cleaned SWG.
    FC not even reading...
    Running boost to get levels up to normal.
    Is there a faster easier way?

    If your water is not clear, you need to stop and SLAM. This is not a job for your SWG.

    Using regular bleach is a faster and easier way to increase the chlorine level.

    Did you just open the pool or has it been okay for some time ? How are you testing the water ? Post a complete set of values.

    Yes turn off the SWG.

    Read the linked article/instructions - and if possible, please post a full set of test results - even if you have to get it tested at the pool store....
