Help! Is anyone familiar with these units. Are they any good? Can they handle the work load required by my pool?
Here's the scoop!
17x33 Inground (vinyl) approx 17000gal
Pentair 2 speed whisperflo pump (.25/1.5)
Electric Heat pump
Pool is in it's 3rd season
1st unit I had was installed wrong by a "professional" and did not work. Received a 2nd unit and have noticed that it only seems to generate when pump is on low speed. I've never run pump just on low before. Can I? Will it be beneficial or will it drastically hurt the circulation and filtering capabilites? Since it's been installed it seems to be holding the chlorine levels previously established. However, to really test the unit, I've had the generation knob set to high and have even superchlorinated 2 times to see if the chlorine level would increase. It has not increased at all. Is this normal? The remainder of my pool chemistry is near perfect (CYA a tad bit high). Sorry for jumping around, but hopefully this gives enough information for someone to help me out with some answers. I am beginning to wonder if perhaps I wasted money on this brand and should consider something else. Thanks!
