    Chlorine output from pentair ic40

    Can someone tell me if running my pump at a higher rpm say 2000 will produce more chlorine than running it at say 1200 rpm for the same amount of time? I am guessing it will but not positive. My cell is on and the flow rate is sufficient at both speeds to keep the cell producing. Jus wasn't sure if the more water pushed through it at a higher rpm meant more chlorine or not. Thanks.

    Cell output is determined by the output setting on the SWG itself. It doesn't matter what RPM your pump is running at, so long as there is enough flow to keep the SWG from shutting off.

    Click on my profile and look for a post about this same unit just a few days ago. I got a response from their support department on exactly how it works
