    Running SWG/Pump

    I have a Kreepy Krauly E-Z Vac that I really like.

    Should I turn off the SWG when the Vac is connected and running?

    The Kreepy Krauly E-Z Vac is a suction side pool cleaner, so it doesn't really care if the SWG is on or not. That is an issue that can affect pressure side cleaners.

    That's a suction side vac so shouldn't hurt to leave the SWG on, as long as you have good flow.

    Thanks guys. I was jsut making sure that I was thinking correctly. I'm more worried about the flow sensor than anything. But the sensor being on the return side, it' shouldn't be effected.
