I have a 6,000 gal above ground vinyl pool that I use seasonally in NC. I am away from the house for extended times, but when I am there I do acually measure and adjust pH, chlorine, etc. The filter is a cartridge filter with a 1,500 gal/hour pump.
I just purchased an Aqua Trol SWG, (with the plan to get a larger pool next year) and would like any estimates on the initial settings for the control panel. I have estimated that 1 volume circulation would be 4 hours of pump time.
Question: Any thoughts on adequacy of this for the times that I am away? If this is an appropriate pump time, any experience on what a starting point for the "Desired level %" setting would be?
I understand that a daily measured approach would be ideal, but my schedule does not allow.
Thanks for any help.
