    how long and how much?

    Well I am super excited because I just pulled the trigger on a Hayward Aqua-rite AQR 15 for my 15,000 gallon pool.

    What is your best guess (I know it is condition dependent, etc.) on how long I will have to run my pump for and what percentage on the SWG?

    I guess my question is what should I start with? 8 hours and 50%, etc.

    Couldn't I save on electricity by trying 4 hours at 90%, etc.

    You will be better served by slower dosing (lower percentage) over a longer time frame to maintain a more constant delivery and level of FC. Can you split up your run times?

    Yes, I can split run times. Currently I only run 2 hours at noon and 1 hour in the evening. Obviously will need to increase that. What would you suggest?
