    Pentair or Generic SWG ?

    I have the timer on the SWG set so that it is only ever on when the pump is on (The pump is a Pentair inteliflow with its own timer and I have it on for 12 hours a day and the SWG for an 8-hour window within that). If nothing goes wrong the SWG can never be on when the pump is off. I...

    Pentair or Generic SWG ?

    The flow light is always green whatever the pump status. It is wired separately to the pump and has its own timer.

    Pentair or Generic SWG ?

    Thanks. I'll check that

    Pentair or Generic SWG ?

    I changed the switch and it fixed the low salt issue so I can generate chlorine again! The flow light still stays on even when the pump if off so that seems likely to be a wiring issue. I'm not too worried about it because I have the timer set so the IC40 is only ever on when the pump is on...

    Pentair or Generic SWG ?

    Thanks. Sounds like that's worth a try.

    Pentair or Generic SWG ?

    A week or so ago I resurrected an old IC40 that was attached to my pool but not used for the last few years and I got it generating chlorine again and I'm now a fan of SWG technology. However the IC40 was not used for 5+ years and has a few problems: - It constantly shows 'very low salt...

    SWG Question

    Hope mine does the same - I'm a bit surprised its still working as its not been used for over 5 years and my now-fired pool guy kept turning it on even though there was negligible salt in the pool.

    SWG Question

    Got it, thanks.

    SWG Question

    And to confirm: When it is stated that the IC40 runs for 10,000 hours does that means 10,000 at full capacity ? If run at 50% would it run for 20,000 hours (in ideal conditions) ?

    SWG Question

    Thanks. In which case I may be able to get away with 14 hours at 20% now the water is cooling down. I will try it and see.

    SWG Question

    Thanks. I currently have the pump on for 14 hours a day at 2000 rpm. Probably a bit longer than needed but it seems quite an energy efficient pump and I like the water feature it drives.

    SWG Question

    I started using my Intelliclor IC40 this week after having stopped using it a few years ago. Without doubt this is the best way to chlorinate one's pool - no idea what I was thinking when I stopped using it - I suspect that in my ignorance adding pucks to plastic floating things just...

    Cloudy Pool after conversion to SWG

    I just tested t it and when I changed the pump speed from 600rpm to 1800rpm there was one or two seconds of bubbles and gurgling in the hot tub where the water flows to. Does that mean the lines are not being cleared ? I think I'm going to not having the IC40 running with the pump at...

    Cloudy Pool after conversion to SWG

    I discovered today that not only does my IC40 claim to be generating at 600rpm but the flow light stays on even when the pump is off altogether! I assume that is a fault with the unit which had not been used for 5 years or more before I resurrected it this last week. Do you think its safe to...

    Cloudy Pool after conversion to SWG

    I did not know that - I do not think I am using excessive muriatic acid so I can probably live with that for now. I do wonder what the annual electricity costs are to run it 24x7 though now I am thinking about it!
