    Problem with SLAM

    Thank you. I had read that before and did so again. Still don't see anything that says UV-C causes chlorine consumption. From that article: "Hypochlorous acid does, in fact, react with UV-C light but not to an extent to cause significant chlorine demand" I'm reaching out to Paramount to get...

    mknauss: do you have a reference source I can review about UV-C systems consuming chlorine? I cannot find any information on that.

    Problem with SLAM

    Remove redundancy?

    Thanks for the responses. We have pop ups, floor drain and skimmer. But I'm using a robot vacuum for the floors. Good point on rotating the pump, I'll look at the space after work.

    Remove redundancy?

    Just moved to our new house in AZ and we are new to pools, but learning. In the attached picture, the water goes first through a leaf canister (black lid) and then travels to the single speed pool pump (tan lid). I want install a variable speed pump and the recommended install describes a 10"...
