My pool is about 3 years old, about 13,500 gal. I need to flush my water already because my Cyanuric acid is over 150. So while I'm at it, I thought I would switch to SWG, on the premise that there are some nice benefits (less or no chloramines) and few drawbacks (dupont has a stone treatment for my coping flagstone).
I've got two questions I'm trying to figure out, and they're not well documented.
First, I run a variable speed pump and unless the polaris is on, it is at very low speed, around 650 or so. I run it for 12-16 hours depending on time of year. So the question here is whether the low flow will be a problem with SWG -- I have read that some will not function unless flow is up to a certain level. I'm not sure how to approach this problem.
Second, I have a pretty decent Zodiac iAquaLink system to manage my pool through my mobile phone. I would like to leverage my investment here and get something that will work very well with the aqualink -- be able to set the variables through the phone etc. I presume this means a zodiac SWG is in the best position to help here, but I dont know exactly what integration exists so maybe the competitors are really no better or worse.
Any perspective on these would be greatly appreciated.
