Can someone check my math and see if I'm doing this correctly?
I have a pentair IC 40 which claims to produce 635g of 'pure chlorine' per 24 h period (I assume this is at 100%).
so I run my pump 12 hours (3 hours, 4 times per day due to time of use pricing). I feel that gives sufficient turnover and skimming action..
I've read I need to replace about 2.5 ppm daily of chlorine.
SO... I *think* this is correct:
according to pool math, 635g of Chlorine Gas (I think) is a rise of 6.4
in 12 hours that's a rise of 3.2
running the unit at 80% should give me 5.12ppm in 24 hours, so at 12 hours run time it should be just over 2.5
Am I making sense?
