    Swg questions

    I am looking at buying the intex swg. I am currently using stabilized chlorine granules and thats it. If I get a swg does it deal with everything or do I need to start adding stabilizer chemicals etc? Im in the UK so not sure on availability of seperate stabilizer etc over here.

    If you have only been using chlorine granules, there is a good chance that your CYA is already too high.

    What do your test results say?

    All the SWG will do is add FC for you everyday. You will still need to be testing daily to dial in the SWG output and make sure the pH stays in range.

    The only thing I have to test is strips and they dont tell me cya. All its tells me is fc and ph. Fc is around 3ppm and ph is around 7.4

    Then you need a better test kit ... and not test strips which are garbage.
