    Converting Trichlor to Liquid Chlorine

    Well..... after weighing all the pros and cons of both systems, (and leaning towards CL injection), I went SWG. With the promo at Discount Salt Pool, the $1,200.00 generator is $979.00. Thanks @Mdragger88 . I learned that their 7 year warranty is not REALLY a 7 year warranty though. A discount...

    Converting Trichlor to Liquid Chlorine

    Looks like a good deal. Not sure of the difference between Universal 40 and Edge 40....

    Installed New Circupool Edge 40

    Yikes! That might be too big for me then. I have 18,000 and I run the filter 24/7. Would that go down that low and run 24 hrs? or would I need an external shut off? Or a smaller unit.... LOL.

    Installed New Circupool Edge 40

    Shade is hard to come by.... we intentionally put the pool where it would get the most sun.... it looks like you've had it about a year... Still like it? Recommend??

    Installed New Circupool Edge 40

    I noticed that the CircuPool EDGE40 Salt Chlorine Generator has an aluminum heat sink on the back. Should it be mounted in total shade to as protect the control box? I'm thinking about one but it would be mounted in 75/25 direct sun.

    Converting Trichlor to Liquid Chlorine

    When I was originally going through the thought process of SWG or LCL, I was comparing pumps with this SWG. CircuPool EDGE40 Salt Chlorine Generator Thoughts on this unit? When I put together the cost comparison of each, I estimated some numbers and it looked like over a 6 year window SWG is...

    Converting Trichlor to Liquid Chlorine

    Thank you. My electricity is half that at 5 cents. So it looks like 25 cents a day to run. It would run 24/7. If that matters.

    Per day; per hour; per month?

    CYA Removal

    Makes sense. My winter cover holds water tight... We pump it off.

    Converting Trichlor to Liquid Chlorine

    So I'm in the research phase of solving my problem, and I like to keep all options on the table (even if just to learn). When thinking SWG..... I understand I should be looking at something 2X the size of the pool. 18,000 X 2 = 36,000 SWG unit. In comparing ALL costs associated with both...

    Converting Trichlor to Liquid Chlorine

    The Stenner rep. told me a lot of people just remove the duck bill and just use the check valve.

    Converting Trichlor to Liquid Chlorine

    I agree with you. The Stenner rep. said he doubted I had more than 25 at the line feeding the return..... but that is a guess. I don't know what would be normal if when the pump is on high, I have 18 psi at the filter. I'm guessing pressure is pressure and would be the same everywhere.... Do...

    Converting Trichlor to Liquid Chlorine

    Injecting in front of return. I have 18 psi at the filter, but not sure if it would increase, decrease, or stay the same at the end of the line. The 18 psi is when the filter pump is on high. On low speed its only about 6 psi. I really don't want to deal with salt.... I don't really know why...

    Converting Trichlor to Liquid Chlorine

    So now I'm rethinking the variable Stenner. I could automate the feed pump with SmartThings to feed as many times a day as I want, and since I run the filter 24/7, I wouldn't need to worry about a relay for that. If the filter is off, the power is off and nothing is running. So I had an option...

    Converting Trichlor to Liquid Chlorine

    Oh My... More to think about!! Using your logic, I could use My SmartThings hub to control a Zwave outlet to control a pump like yours. I can control an outlet down to seconds, and with a touch of a button, turn on extra CL. So maybe I was thinking along the lines of my Trichlor feeder that...
