    CompuPool output question...

    Hi everybody:

    Is the output % a percentage of time (as in cuts on for two minutes out of ten, if set at 20%)? Or, is it on all the time and just the actual output is controlled by the output setting?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Re: CompuPool output question...

    On the CompuPool, and most other SWGs, it is a percentage of the time that the pump is on that the SWG is also on. There are a few models of SWG where the activity level of the cell is adjusted based on the percentage setting and the cell is on all of the time that the pump is on, but that is uncommon.

    The end result is exactly the same regardless of how this is done.

    Mmmm....I've never seen mine while "off." It appears to be running all the time, even when I set the output to 10%. My FC is 8.0 and I can't get that to budge, no matter what % output I set.

    What happens when you turn the percentage down to 0%?

    It stops producing gas and says "No Output."

    It's amps that changes.

    Re: CompuPool output question...

    Bobo is right, which he should be because we both own the same system. The CPSC cell is clear (but blue) and when you turn down the percentage, it still bubbles, just less. When it kicks back up to test salt, you can see the bubbles increase during the test. So it absolutely is the amps.

    Yep, that is what the Compu Pool support tech told me today, too.
