This is a very similar question to the one in "Oversized Salt Water Generator" but I wanted to check and see if the advise in that thread holds up when we are talking one third the amount of water.
I'm getting a small exercise pool installed. I guess some might call it a spool. It is 8 x 17 x 5. Once you remove the volume taken by the steps and bench it is only about 3900 gallons.
I'm currently planning on getting a salt chlorine generator from Hayward. The smallest cell they have is designed for pools up to 15000 gallons. I've read a couple of posts that say once the cell size is 3 times greater than the number of gallons you will run into trouble. Is this something I should be concerned about? Will I be able to get by running it at a very low percentage? I will have a P4 controller that should allow me to set the "on" time in 1% increments.
The "Oversized Salt Generator" thread seems to indicate this would be okay, but that thread is talking about a 12,000 gallon pool, where my pool is 1/3rd that size.
