    FC generation versus pump speed

    If run time and SWG % are equal, do higher pump speeds generate more FC than lower speeds?

    Sorry if this is answered else where.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    Nope. SWG is on the same no matter the pump speed.

    I don't think so- it would generate less concentrated chlorine at higher speeds but the same amount determined by your cell electrodes area.

    Re: FC generation versus pump speed

    I had recently been thinking about the affect of pump speed on the SWG cell. The same amount of hypochlorite acid is produced according to the chlorinator setting regardless of pump speed but is there any difference in the super chlorination effect of the cell with a change in flow rate and dwell time. I recently decided to test my return water for pH and FC, my pool had a FC of 8ppm and a pH of 7.8 and the return water had a FC of 10ppm and pH of 7.8.
