Theory: Running the SWG during a SLAM could make the SLAM end sooner and reduce the amount of bleach needed.
Caveat: Can't have it running during a OCLT.
So I had to do a SLAM last weekend. Since I understood how much FC my SWG was producing, I keep it running all during the SLAM, 24 hrs a day. I still tested the same and still needed to supplement with bleach but it would not have been as much. I finished the SLAM in about 3 days.
My theory is that the the SWG kept the FC higher during the night, reduced the peaks and valleys of FC ppm and reduced the amount of bleach I needed during the day and how much I needed to add in the morning.
If the only real issue with this for most is that for someone that is just trying to understand the concept of a SLAM, their SWG, FC, CYA, etc, I fully understand.
I just wanted to know if there was some other reason it is not recommended.
