I'm trying to figure out how long I need to run my pump and at what level I need to run my new Jandy AquaPure. I currently have my pump running 12 hours/day (2am - 5am; 12pm - 9pm) with my AquaPure at 80%. My basic numbers are FC 1.5; CC 0; PH 7.5 (constantly adding acid); Alk 80; CH 280; CYA 70.
I appear to be having difficulty getting my FC to stay in the 3-4 range, as indicated by the PoolCalculator. Now, we are in a major heatwave here (100+ degrees today and many 92+ days) with 87+ degree water. I've been supplementing with Bleach to raise the levels, but I'm wondering if I just need to add more pump time....or is it just because it's so HOT (we also get direct sun from 10am - 8pm).
The AquaPure is supposed to generate 1.25 pounds of chlorine per 24 hour period. I am running it at 80% for 12 hours (as previously mentioned). So, based on my rudimentary calculations, that translates to a 1/2 pound of chlorine per day. How much bleach (6%) does this translate to?
