    Variable speed Pump and SWG

    Hello All

    I've been thonking about swaping out my pump for a Variable speed pentair in order to cut energy consuption. My question, How will this effect my chlorine generation on the SWG. I assume i would need to run my pump longer in order to make up for it, or do i just raise the % of chlorine?

    I have a variable speed Ecostar and all you really need to do is find the lowest speed that the SWG will detect flow through the cell and produce chlorine. Then simply work your pump times and percentages as normal knowing that if you set the pump to run at a lower speed than that it will not generate chlorine.
