    SWG cycles on and off

    Does any know if an SWG cell cycles on and off based on the chlorine level? Right now, I keep mine at 36%. At that level the amps and instantaneous salt level are 0. If I boost it up to 40%, it starts to generate. Putting back to 36% shuts it back down again. All lights are normal no mater what it is doing.

    The % is the amount of time the SWG actively generates in some time period (usually around 2 hours).
    If we assume 2 hours cycle, at 36% it would generate for 43 minutes and then sit idle for 77 minutes.
    It is not based on FC level at all.

    I did not think of that. But, it makes sense. It does not talk about that in the manual.
