There has been some debate recently over the correct location of the SWG relative to the Spa. Some say that if the SWG runs to the spa, it will overchlorinate. Others maintain that the spa needs some sort of chlorination.
I'm sure there is no 100% correct answer and it depends on the use, etc. but I am interested in what you all have to say about it. My question is:
- With the intellichlor and Intellitouch automation, can I 'turn down' the chlorination in spa mode?
If this were possible, then the problem could be solved -- water chlorinated, but not overchlorinated.
The Intellichlor manual states that it should be before the pool/spa 3-way valve to chlorinate the spa and to keep gas vrom building up in the pipes.
