I am in the process of figuring out a new chlorine delivery system for a pool I manage and am in need of help. I have an indoor pool and spa (both commercial) and the owner has been running triclor through it for some time so you can guess what the state said when they came in and tested it....."Your closed". I had about 150 ppm of cya and just to keep the pool sanitized I had to keep the FC above 20 ppm.
Like I said I am looking for a new chlorine delivery system but I also need to see the reality that I will not be at this job for the rest of my life so I need this system to be idot proof.
We do have a chemtrol 255 that controls the feeders for our mereatic acid and triclor feeders, but I do not think that they are running correctly because the spa will feed triclor untill the orp is 807 with a FC of over 60 ppm and the pool with an orp of 714 will have FC of 14 ppm. I do understand that before I can hook up a new system I have to figure this out.
I am looking in to calhypo and liquid chlorine. The setup for calhypo will be 600 but the tablets will be more expensive. where the liquid will cost 2100 to set up but I will be able to run 8.25% bleach through it at a cost of $1.50 a gallon (from walmart).
What are your thoughts, Please?
