First time posting here and I'd like to thank everyone for all of the great info on this site.
This is my first season my our new inground pool (we live in the Toronto Area). I have a 14x12x28 mountain lake shaped pool with a waterfall, a 5 foot "deep" end and solar on the roof and so far we love it.
Now onto my problem...
There is little to no chlorine in my pool.
The solar valve actuator turns on and off 4-5 times in a typical 20 minute span. Every time it turns off, my SWG (Hayward T-15) turns off for 3 minutes! As a result I do not have enough chlorine being produced.
My pool contractor says there is a problem with the solar valve actuator (that it shouldn't be turning on and off like that) and that the SWG turns off for 3 minutes each time as a safety feature. My solar contractor says that my pool pump (Hayward 1hp Superpump) is a little underpowered in terms of flow and that if I upgrade to a 3/4 hp Tristar pump my issues will go away.
So, I have two people basically pointing the finger at each other and no chlorine in my pool.
Can anyone help me out with this?
