    SWG chlorine production ratings

    I have a question on this. The owners manuel of the IC60 says it can produce up to 2lbs of pure chlorine a day. By saying pure does that mean it would be equivilant to say 2lbs of 100% cal hypo if it existed that is? Or say 3.77 lbs of 53% cal hypo? So if I was using 1lb/day of 53% cal hypo to maintain FC levels then my salt water generator should have to produce .53lbs ????

    When SWGs are rating in pounds of chlorine per day, they are talking about chlorine gas. One pound of chlorine gas is equal to about 1.5 pounds of cal-hypo (though it depends on the cal-hypo concentration). You can use the Pool Calculator to make these comparisons, since it has settings for both chlorine gas and cal-hypo.
