I'm trying to figure out where to set my SWG to keep the pool clean but to run it as little as possible and I'm looking for a santiy check on the setting. I know there are a million variables the effect the setting (pool size, temperature, amount of bathers, etc), but I'd still like to know what the conventional wisdom is.
When they set up my pool, I'm pretty sure the guys said to set it at about 35% and then bump it up or down from there depending on the chlorine level.
It seems that if I put it down at 35% I get a very low chlorine level (1.0) and slightly cloudy water. And this is early in the season, with cool temps and people only being in the pool a couple hours on the weekend.
Anyhow, I'm just trying get a feel for what is "normal" so what do you set your SWG at?
