    FC target for SWG. Should the guide be revised?

    Picking up a thread from the Getting Started forum, with a specific topic that's better to discuss in Chemistry 201.

    Water Balance for SWGs:
    http://www.troublefreepool.com/conte...rine-generator
    To summarize:
    FC 3-5 ppm
    CYA 70-80
    I do see that the CYA chart on this site suggests higher for SWG.
    CYA 70 Target FC 5
    CYA 80 Target FC 6
    FC of 3-5 may be fine for minimum, but is that really high enough for a TFP?

    Should FC 3-5 on the salt water balance page be revised/raised? If no, why? If yes, why, and to what?

    I really use the pool calculator for FC as a MINIMUM. I have my target as 5-6 so that I never fall below 3.

    FC of 4-6 is consistent with the chart. Article updated.

    The summary at the bottom of the page needs the update as well.
