I am new to SWG's and can use some guidance from veterans
I recently converted my pool to saltwater, after being resurfaced 31 days ago with plaster. Is a 11,000 Gal. in ground pool.
Here is my water chemistry:
Salt ~3200 (depends which pool store measures it: one says 3100 the other says 3400) Is about right for how much salt I added a day ago.
Calcium : I think is about 300
Sand filter, recently back-washed
SWG: Circupool SJ20; I oversized the SWG, basically is a 20K Gal unit for 11k Gal pool. I was expecting that I can keep it running at 50% or so while getting some decent chlorine
Here is my issue: a couple days before adding salt my pool was using about 4-5ppm of chlorine (liquid) used per day. There was no overnight chlorine drop.
After adding the salt and starting the SWG letting it run 8 hrs overnight at 100%, I was expecting to see some good chlorine level in the morning. To my surprise, the chlorine lvl in the morning right after sunrise, was about 1.5ppm, maybe 0.5 ppm over what I left it with at night after sunset. Strange....
Now,24 hrs later is 8PM at night and my chlorine is about 1ppm. So if have to judge - it barely made enough chlorine and burnt 4-5ppm over the day
This seems very low to me - but I would like to know what do you guys think
Also - just for confirmation I have 3 titanium plates inside my cell - is this right for a SJ20?
Thanks in advance
