I have an EasyTouch system with an IntelliChlor 20. After a week or so I pretty much have the pool taken care of, however, I'm having problems keeping chlorine in the spa. Reading the manual I found the following snippet.
Up/Down buttons: Set the chlorination output level for the spa water from 0 to 20%.
To prevent over chlorination of the spa, the EasyTouch system will automatically drop
the chlorine output levels to 1/20th of the current pool output when the spa is switched
on. For example, if the pool output level is set to 60%, when the spa is switched on,
the chlorination level is reduced to 3%
My pool is about 3900 gallons, and my spa is 600 gallons. Obviously, my spa isn't going to use 1/20th of the chlorine the pool uses. Am I reading this right that the easytouch is outsmarting itself, and if so, does anyone have any advice?
My pool stays happy at 12% to 15% on a pump run time of 11 hours, where the spa run time is 4 or 5 hours. I supposed I could run the pool at a much higher level for 2 or 3 hours. Thoughts?
