After many false starts and lots of work, we finally got our AGP up and running this weekend. We have a Hayward Aqua Trol RJ SWG, and as they direct for system start-up, I ran the pump for 24 hours without turning on the cell. Then I switched the cell on yesterday evening. When I tested before turning the cell on, my FC was .6 ppm from the bleach I had been adding. This morning, the FC was 1.8 ppm, so I know it was producing chlorine.
When I was looking at the manual for the SWG to remind myself what the different diagnostic numbers are, I noticed that their illustration looked … upside-down when compared to mine. It is just a crude installation, but I am paranoid after all the trouble we have had. I wish pool and pool equipment manufacturer's would invest some time in making their manuals and guides understandable.
Here is an image I grabbed online and marked up. The red arrow is pointing to the end I have attached to the elbow at the return jet. The blue arrow indicates the flow of water through the cell. Is my cell on upside-down?
Thanks in advance for any help.
