Just went and checked my FC after pumping out 1000+- gallons of rain water that came over the last couple days. I'm sitting at 1.5 FC which brings to mind two questions.
1. Why is my salt generator called an Autopilot system? If I have to constantly raise and lower the percentage based on any number of variables, then it ain't piloting anything... I am! It does appear to be TRYING to pilot something though as the percentage on the display changes all the time from what I have it on. It'll be set to 22% with a 24 hour pump run time and then I'll go out another day and it'll say 15%. Can someone explain that to me? And does a 20% output on a 24 hour cycle sound about right?
2. Obviously 1.5 isn't the ideal 3-4 range, but is it unsafe to swim in? What FC will algae grow? I just put the Autopilot into 24 hour boost mode to get it back up to snuff but what if I were out of town a few days and wasnt here to address the issue? Will algae bloom that quick or does it have to drop all the way to 0 FC for a few days?
Thanks as always.
