    run time

    I've just added a ton of salt to our pool Well, ok, not really a ton, more like 480lbs. Anyway, I've got a Tcell-15 and wondering what others in hot southern climates are running for their SWCG setting just to get an idea if we're in the normal ballpark; 40%, 60%...? I run the pump for the filter for 8hrs right now.

    Re: run time

    Start at 50% and see what your FC level does ... it is all trial and error and dependent on your pools sun exposure, CYA level, and debris load.

    Re: run time

    If you are happy with how clean the pool is and the pool is maintaining the correct amount of FC you are good to go for now. You are in the ballpark with your settings, and they may or may not be tweaked depending on your chemical balance, pump speed, how clean your pool is, etc.

    Re: run time

    Jbizzle is the master-izzle! He speaks the truth: I have a similar pool size, same chlorinator, and I live relatively close. This week, I'm keeping things in check by running at 45% for 7 hours.

    I will bump up both run time and duty cycle when we have a lot of bathers or as the water temperature rises. With my pool at my previous house in Magnolia, I recall that August was the worst month for chlorine consumption. So keep an eye on your water chemistry and adjust your chlorinator and run time as appropriate.
