    new hook up swg

    I am about to hook up a circupool RG 30 swg on a 12,000 agp,tried the cheaper intex last couple years with no luck.This time i will and have been reading pool school and hoping wife will too,lol
    My question is should i leave the chlorinator inlinne with the SWG or remove it? Also should i get pool clear before putting salt and running SWG? I been have wife dummping bleach every night but pool is still greenish,and i iam waiting on test FAS-DPD .thanks

    I would recommend getting the pool chemicals in balance before hooking up the SWCG. Why you ask? A SWCG does a good job at maintaining chlorine levels but doesn't do the best job at shocking it. You can add a couple of gallons of bleach to bring the chlorine level up quickly, but a SWCG brings it up slowly by it's design limitations. Even if you have a super-chlorinate setting it still has to produce it over a period of time.

    greenish... Are you doing the shock procedure?

    It is alright to have both a tablet feeder and a SWG. If you do, put the tablet feeder first and the SWG last.

    As bobodaclown suggested, it is best to get the pool cleaned up and balanced before starting to use the SWG.
