I was just reading the manual on my Pool Pilot Digital Nano (again.....) and saw where the the installer programs the pool volume. I seem to be having trouble with the SWCG maintaining the chlorine. I've been running it at 100% 9 hours a day....
So I double checked the programmed pool volume, it was set at 15,000 gallons. Now I have a irregular, free form, sort of kidney + shaped pool, wide at both ends, more narrow in the middle and was told by the pool renovator that it was approximately 22,000 gallons.
I've just measured it again, averaging the wide ends with the narrow middle to get an average width of 19' by 38' long. It is 8' at the deep end and 3' at the shallow end. According to the pool calculator, my volume is 29,700 gallons. WTH?????
If this is correct, then I have been way off on EVERYTHING! No wonder I can't keep the algae at bay for very long! Ugggggghh!!!!!!!
Have I correctly figured the volume of my pool? If so, I'm sure that you will all agree, I need to readjust all my calculations, as well as resetting the SWCG.
Here is a photo of my pool. It's the best I could do without climbing on the roof, and I'm just too darn tired for that tonight!
Any advice will be appreciated. Commiseration allowed, as well.
