    Closing in Northwest Missouri

    I’m in St. Louis,MO area and we still have not closed either. Today, my water is at 61. I keep cleaning the skimmers and removing the leaves. My SWG is still producing and I’m keeping my water balanced. It is usually the end of October before we close. This is our 8th year. Everyone around me...

    Help choosing SWG

    I wish I would have bought the RJ for that very same reason. We were leery of changing to salt because of potential damage to equipment and our concrete pool deck. Now I have the SJ that doesn’t produce unless I’m at 4200! The water is definitely salty and worried about damage from salt that high.

    Help choosing SWG

    Currently, my FC is high because I added liquid chlorine last night. FC 7 Ph 7.6 Alk 90 Ch 130 CYA 70 Salt should be at 4200-(haven’t checked yet since I just added last night) CSI -0.1 Pool passes OCLT and water is crystal clear. Pic of salt cell is attached.

    Help choosing SWG

    I’m using the Taylor test kit, same as you. I was at 4000 and just not getting chlorine production and not seeing any bubbles in the salt cell. I added one bag of salt last night, which brings my level up an additional 200ppm. I stirred it around and let the pump run all night without the SWG...

    Help choosing SWG

    I have a Circupool SJ55. I have to keep my salt above 4000 for it to work. Had I known I needed such a high level of salt, I probably would have bought a different system.

    SJ55 and chlorine production

    This is my 2nd year with my SJ55. I know they don’t start generating chlorine until water is above 60 degrees. Mine really kicks in and seems to work better once water hits a steady 80 degrees. In the 60-70 degree range, it barely keeps my FC at 4ppm. I’m guessing the water temp is the reason...

    Savi melody light replacement

    Thanks, we did some research and found some lights locally. They weren’t cheap, but did have a 3 year warranty available. Treo LED lights with 6 lockable colors and 2 color change modes. They’re a completely different style than the Savi Melody lights, so hopefully we will get more years out of...

    Savi melody light replacement

    I saw an old post where someone was asking about replacements for Savi Melody lights. There wasn’t much of a response to the old post at that time. I understand Savi has been purchased the Jandy. Does anyone currently have any recommendations on color changing replacements? I can buy the Savi...

    How much FC should a SWG produce?

    I pass the OCLT with the pump running.

    How much FC should a SWG produce?

    Oh, got it. Will check that. Thanks! BTW, it is producing more now that I have bumped up the salt.

    How much FC should a SWG produce?

    I do the OCLT with everything turned off. I have 0 to only .5 loss. I have my salt bumped up to 4000 now and did get a little higher FC level reading. I’m going to raise it up to about 4200 so it falls within range of what the tech at Circupool recommended. Hopefully I’ll find the sweet spot...

    How much FC should a SWG produce?

    I have bumped it up to 7 with chlorine. It stays there overnight, but drops in the sun. I've been running the SWG from 3PM to 3AM. I check my FC before the pump and SWG come on at 3PM, when the FC should be at it's lowest point. I will lose 2- 3 PPM on full sunny days. The SWG will bring me...
