I've had my Auto pilot (SC-48) running for a little over 2 weeks now and I have a question about the amount of chlorine it's producing. I have it set to run for 12 hours (7p-7a). I'm at 50% on power level 3, yet it only raised the free chlorine level by .5 ppm. Here are my numbers:
When I run the test on the auto pilot, it shows that it's running at power level 3; 29v 6.8a, minerals 3300.
My cya is still low, but I just added 2 pounds yesterday so I'm still working at getting to 70-80 ppm.
I haven't seen that spike in ph that I've heard about with SWG's...but my pool is vinyl. With the alk at 80, do I dare try to raise the ph?
The pool loses between 1 and 2ppm of cl per day. I started at the lowest power setting as the instructions suggested, but I was still having to add cl. Same thing at level 2 and 50%. I've been at level 3 50% since Tuesday so I'm not sure yet if it's keeping up with the pool's cl demand. Still, isn't that a low amount of cl being produced? Am I shortening the cell's lifespan by operating at that level?
