    SWG - Am I doing this right?

    I am just needing some direction/reassurance that I am on the right track with my SWG/pump run time.

    I have read the previous posts and it seems to be do whatever makes your pool happy which I understand but I am still wanting to be sure that I am running things correctly.

    Latest results:
    FC 4
    CC 0
    CH100
    TA 70
    pH 7.6
    CYA 60
    Salt 3500 ppm
    Water Temp 80

    I am running pressure side cleaner at a higher rpm for about 2 hours in the morning without SWG (filter/pump off). Then I am running filter/pump at 1000 rpm from 1 - 7 in the afternoon. My SWG is set at 20% as a higher setting was producing too much FC. My water is clear and pool stays fairly free of debris even though we have trees all around. Do I need to break up the afternoon run time? Sun is on pool in stages from around 9 - 6.

    Since being a first time pool owner, I am still a little afraid I am going to do something wrong and have to go through the shock process and I am determined to keep the pool balanced so I will not have to do that! After all, if the pool girl ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.

    I sure do hope so. Every time I read the posts about algae and clearing up the "green swamp", I shudder.
