    Going to SWG

    Right now I am adding bleach to the pool in order to maintain FC levels. I am using about 8 to 10 oz of 10% bleach per day. Very soon I will be switching to the SWG. I know the capacity of the SWG in lbs/day of chlorine gas. What I would like to know is the equivalent of bleach to chlorine gas. This will allow me to establish an initial setting on the SWG.

    I believe that 1 lb of chlorine gas corresponds to 153 oz of 10% chlorinating liquid. Keep in mind that it is likely that you will need less total chorine when using the SWG.
