    Trouble dialing in SWG

    I plan on adding what CYA I have on hand, I’m sure I’ll need more, once my vacuum is finished.

    Trouble dialing in SWG

    Thank you! I thought you were saying that the swg works independently depending on CYA but you have to adjust it manually ??‍♀️ My FC is at 2.5 being set at 25% for 10h, it’s only been on about 6h though. Am I correct in thinking that once I get it dialed in that it will keep about the same FC...

    Trouble dialing in SWG

    I think I got pool math linked. I turned off The swg for 24h and set it at 25% for 10h so we’ll see how that does. I plan on adding CYA tomorrow. Thanks.

    Trouble dialing in SWG

    How does the CYA determine how hard the swg works?

    Trouble dialing in SWG

    We used liquid chlorine the first 2 years we had the pool and added the swg this season.

    Trouble dialing in SWG

    I am not sure how to link pool math but my most recent results with TF-100 are: FC-6 CC-0 CYA-40 PH-7.7 TA-100 CA-50 I had CYA at 60 but we have gotten a ton of rain and I’m guessing that’s why it dropped. Pool is 74 degrees and is in full sun all day.

    Trouble dialing in SWG

    I am posting a pic of what pool math is telling me but my FC is at 6. I initially set it at 62.5 but FC was 8 so I lowered it again. Going to try 12.5% at 14h. Just curious what the optimal run time and SWG% would be for me and why the pool math app isn’t correct? My goal is 3 FC. Thanks.

    SLAM with no CYA?

    They told me it was ? glad I don’t have a pH issue though, thanks!

    SLAM with no CYA?

    Anyone know why these would be different? I just realized the kit said to use R-0014 so I used it and got 7.4. I think I bought it at Leslie’s last year because I ran out. R-0014 looks lighter.

    SLAM with no CYA?

    Thank you! I saw Leslie’s has Natural Chemistry instant conditioner, is that ok to use?

    SLAM with no CYA?

    We opened to a green pool yesterday after using a mesh cover for the first time. I have not been able to find CYA and could only find a few gallons of 6% bleach but am going to try again today. I have a new SWG to add but know I need to get water balanced first. I’m just now starting pump due to...

    Help replacing/adding equipment

    I don’t think so but I got confirmation from someone at inyo pools that my filter and the pump I chose (1.5hp single speed) were compatible since they’re sold together. He said typically that is the case that you don’t want your pump gpm higher than filter gpm but sand filters are different ??‍♀️

    Am I missing something? My filter says 34gpm and all the pumps I am seeing have higher gpm, I thought it was suppose to be lower?

    Help replacing/adding equipment

    Do you have a 2 speed pump? How does that work when calculating pump run time for circulating the whole pool volume and for running the swg? If we were to do what you do, we would just hook up the swg to timer and leave pump on low correct? I’ll wait to test before ordering the salt, I got the...

    Help replacing/adding equipment

    Hey guys, I have a few more questions. We have decided to just replace the pump and my husband wants to go with a single speed 1.5hp. We have pretty much decided on the circupool edge-25 swg. I have a robot vac so don’t typically manual vac. We are also looking at adding the Pentair...
