    UGH...now I need to connect SWG to Pump. Electrical help.

    Yup, I did. The current sensing device I use is a CR4395-EH-120-110-X-CD-ELR-I. It senses current on one of the pump's 220v lines and switches 120V to my SWCG based on the current trip point setting. My old pump ran off of 120V so I used the circuit to power the SWG through the CSR. If you...

    swg for 55k pool

    Just as a data point, a Cirupool RJ60 puts out 3.1 lbs of chlorine gas per day, which in a 55k pool can add 6.8 ppm per day. This means that you could run it at 100% for 15 hrs and get 4.2 FC or run it 24 hrs at 60% (4.1 FC per day) . I personally think that with a VS pump, this is a better...

    What salt cell to try next???

    This is an interesting example of why when you are comparing SWGs you really need to look at the SWGs daily output. In this case the IC60 is rated at 2.0 lbs/day of chlorine gas where as the RJ60 puts out 3.1 lbs/day. Autopilots 80k units puts out 2.52 lbs/day. Did you mean RJ60?

    Blue Essence SWG needs to be recalibrated daily

    The issue is that the SWG is trying to generate chlorine when there is no water flow through it. You have two problems, first, the SWG's power should be off when the pump isn't running and the second is that your flow switch isn't working. The flow switch should stop the SWG from generating...

    I think my 2 years old Inyo pump/vgreen motor is failing

    The Inyo boys don't think you can do it. But if you read the comments below the video a couple of people say it is not as hard as they let on. The tough problem will be finding out what bearings you will need before taking the motor apart. I will be interested in how you make out since I...

    Switch from Chlorine pool to SWG

    Just a word of caution on the Core SWG. It only has four (25%, 50%, 75% or 100%) power level settings so you are going to need to balance power settings versus pump run time. It may not be an issue, but you should be aware of this before you commit to it.

    no name VS pumps?

    Looks to me like its the same pump as Cirupool/Discount Salt Pool Smartflo VS Pump. Compare the two manuals, they are basicly that same except Cirupool did a better editing job. Try searching the forum on "Smartflo" and you will see several theads that may help you.

    Trouble keeping chlorine up in 100 degree weather

    A T9 cell produces 0.98 lbs of chlorine gas per day. Running it at 70% for 12 hours in your 19K gallon pool will produce 2.2 ppm FC per day. That's not going to be enough to keep up in this heat. Oops, a little slow on the reply button.
