So I've read that I really only need to run my pumps for 4 hours on this site for a residential pool. My configuration will turnover my water in less than 3 hours. What I'm having trouble with is maintaining the proper target value for my chlorine (6).
I run the pumps for 5 1/2 hours. I have my SWG set for 75%. Two days ago my chlorine level was 5 and yesterday it fell to 3. My SWG produces 567 gm (1.25 lbs) of chlorine per 24 Hour period, I'm assuming that is at 100% production.
I know this is all subjective, and all pools are different. Should I increase the % on the SWG? Should I increase the pump time?
Main pump is 142 gpm. Cartridge filter can handle 150 gpm. Maybe some professional can chime in and give me a direction on what to do here? Or is this really just hit and miss?
