    Keeping FC levels up

    Quick question for the experts. Will I have to add bleach while using a SWG or will it produce enough to keep levels up?

    you shouldnt have to add any. you have pretty much the same setup as me. maybe just toss some in before or after a big party. don't use the boost feature, just toss in some bleach and take it easy on your cell. just set the % so it maintains whatever level you need at whatever amount of time you choose. im at 40% for 8 hours - but you may need more or less. just gotta make sure its set for enough time to make what you need.

    you DO want to test chlorine - i do every other day to make sure its working properly. your pool is warmer and gets more sun than mine but we have almost the exact same equipment and size of pool.

    Yeah, our setup is close. Thanks for the info, I will change the pump run time and adjust accordingly.
