Please forgive me if the following question has already been discussed on this forum. I searched the site as best I could but could not find anything.
How does a variable speed pump affect the efficiency and life span of a SWG system? Can a salt cell work as effectively at the slower variable pump speeds as it does with a standard one-speed pump? Would a cell wear out faster if you ran your pool pump 24 hours at a slow speed (say 20 GPM) versus running 8 hours per day at regular speed (80 GPM)? And for that matter, would not a variable speed pump & motor running at 24 hours per day wear out faster than a standard pump motor running at 8 hours per day?
Needless to say, I currently have a SWG system and a standard one-speed pump. I am considering buying a variable speed pump but am worried about how the slower pump speeds would affect my SWG system. Any information you could provide on this topic would be most helpful in my decision to possibly buy a variable speed pump.
