Last year was our first year with the pool and I didn't keep up with testing it as much as I should have. It was always clear so I left it as is! This year I want to get everything running smoothly and actually learn about pool chemistry and be able to maintain the pool with no outside help.
That said, I have a pretty good understand of pool chemistry. Right now our CYA is around 50 but our FC is 0. I will be SLAMming the pool soon but as I got to thinking, I was wondering how much chlorine the Pentair IC40 can produce so that I can determine what % to set it at and how long to run my pump.
We have a roughly 20,000 gallon pool with a DE filter and a Pentair IC40 SWG. I've read that if run at 100% the IC40 will produce 1.4 pounds of chlorine per day. One I have SLAMmed the pool and gotten CC to 0 and FC to 3-5ppm, how much chlorine should my SWG need to generate each day to keep the FC levels constant? I'm looking for that figure in pounds of chlorine, that way I can optimize the pump run time and the SWG output levels.
