    Using SWG to shock the pool

    Quick question here: The pool has a 2hp pump, and a 420 sq ft cartridge filter (I'm pretty sure Dad, who bought the setup a few years back, got heavily pool stored here). Although I don't have a flow meter installed, the filter indicates that it can turn over 50k gallons in 6 hours. Since the pool is only 33k, and the pump is running 24/7, it seems that I'm turning over the water multiple times per day. If I run the SWG at a higher %, will that give me any kind of substantial boost to the FC levels?

    It will raise the FC higher the longer you run it and/or the higher you set the percentage, but it won't effectively "shock" the pool. It will however, help if you're in the midst of shocking the pool. Keep in mind that shock is a process.
