I have a complete Jandy system (pump, filter, chlorinator, MX8 cleaner) for a 14000 gallon custom built pool completed July of 2012. This system has had issues from the beginning and I would appreciate any insight or advice that can be offered. I'm far from having any kind of pool knowledge and I'm just a new pool owner. The system has the AquaPure Ei series chlorinator and a 1.5HP Model FHPM series pump. The system was wired with a single manual timer to the pump for low speed. It has a manual switch for the high speed function of the pump. The Ei Pure system is wired hot and always stays on. The pool water has always stayed clear and the water has always tested fine except for showing low chlorine. The main problem is that the chlorinator excessively scales. Jandy replaced it once and within a week it crusted over again with a thick white scale. The water tests fine… tested by Jandy, the builder, pool stores. Now the scale has started to appear in the pool. The solution being offered now is to rewire the system so that the pump/chlorinator/timer works on high. The feeling is that a higher flow rate will fix this problem. Typically the pool runs 8 hours a day on low, with the chlorinator set at different outputs depending on the time of year. I don’t know how increasing the flow will matter? The flow rate in the manual has a max. but no min. GPM? Won’t we just loose the efficiency of the two speed pump? Anyone have any solutions, feedback, comments?
