    Goldline PS8 start-up

    Help Please: I am starting the process of SWG and I need to know the next step. I have read the manual but it's somewhat confusing. Here goes...

    1) I have chems in order
    2) yesterday I added salt, 18 bags or 720 lbs
    3) running pump for 24 hours
    4) now what...how do I turn on cell. I have the aquapod but don't see a on/off button. I see a salt % adjustment and a ppm button but thats it. How do I operate in conjuction with my filter which is on 16 hours a day.

    Thanks for guidance

    The % setting controls what fraction of the time the cell is on. The controller automatically only runs the SWG while the pump is running.

    Start by adjusting the % to 50%, give it 24 hours, and see what your FC level is. If FC is too low, turn up the %. If FC is too high, turn down the %.

    Okay, fc at 5 and salt at 3400 ppm. I run the pump high from 8a-12n and low from 12n-12 mid. Control is set at 50 percent pool 3 percent spa. Should I adjust anything?

    That sounds fairly good, though that is probably more pump run time than you really need. See

    Assuming your CYA level is around 70 to 80, having FC at 5 is perfect.

    Cya is 80-100. What pump time recommendation can you give?
