    CircuPool Conversion

    I am converting our pool to an SWG. After much time on this forum and its recommendations and reviews, I have narrowed it down to CircuPool. I have a 17-18k gallon pool south facing in the Central Florida sun/heat. My choices are between the CircuPool RJ-45 PLUS and the RJ-60 PLUS. Is the RJ-60...

    Water test shows bromine for my Clorine salt water (SWG) pool

    Been having some issues trying to get my pool open. Had been using an old pack of test strips and realised they were very out of date resulting in I think me adding too much stabiliser to the pool, so ordered some more tests (different brand), replaced half the water and this test contains a...

    Shrimp in my salt water pool?????

    Why do I have shrimp in my salt water pool? They are very, very tiny, but those are definitely shrimp. The second image shows them in relation to the bottom of a small beach bucket so you can see how small they are, maybe 1/2 cm. FC 6.5 pH 7.4 TA 80 CH 300 CYA 50

    Best SWG for a 60,000 gallon commercial pool

    We are looking at making the switch to SWG at our pools, starting with our 60,000 gallon pool in Michigan. It's a brand new pool as of 2020, though I regret that I wasn't more involved as the pool company built it out with a Jandy single speed pump (that they didn't even hook up to the...

    New SWG Pool - Rising Chlorine

    We have a new 20,000 gallon SWG Gunite Pool filled on 5/6 and the pump running continuously since then, mostly at low speed (1500-1700 rpm) when not in use or while cleaning. 18 bags (@ 40 lbs each) of salt was added on 5/27 which works out to about 3400 ppm. The Intellichlor IC40 label says the...

    Hello I have a Jandy AquaPure with IAquaLink. Three days ago I started getting an error message reading on my interface app showing water temp SHORT and my salt water generator stopped producing chlorine. I have chlorine production set to 75% in the app but it reads 00% on the panel. By all...

    New to SWG- Question regarding balancing

    Hi all! We recently installed a SWG system for our pool, and we just opened the pool today. I know we need to balance everything first and then add some liquid chlorine before we add the salt and get the SWG going. At opening these were my levels: FC- 0 PH- 6.8 TA- 40 CYA- 30 I have sodium...

    Krystal Clear SWG CYA Says 30, Pool School says at least 60?

    Hi! Anyone have an Intex Krystal Clear SWG? Are you following the manufacturer CYA levels or pool school? Why would there be a difference in recommendations between the two?

    wiring options for SWG

    Hello everyone, I am going to be purchasing a new SWG this season and am trying to plan how I am going to wire this thing up. I currently have a single speed pool pump(120v) running off a timer. I understand that the preferred way to wire the SWG is to have a 2nd wiring run off the timer to...

    Please help determine whether I have the necessary equipment to install a SWG.

    I've read through quite a few posts posts on this topic, but still cannot definitively determine what is or isn't in my EasyTouch box. I would like to convert my pool to salt by installing an IC60. I wasn't sure that I wanted salt water when the pool was under construction, but I instructed the...

    Minimum Pump Gph for SWG Systems

    I'm brainstorming the idea of a SWG for a small steel-framed, vinyl liner 1718gal pool that is annoying to maintain chlorine daily. In an old post, I saw a someone mention to oversize SWG 2-3x the capacity of your pool, i'm presuming so that you can generally maintain your FC at a lower SWG...

    Salt water and wasps??

    I just converted to an and opened my salt water pool. Yellow jackets are a problem here. Last year, in my chlorine pool, I would have to manually kill yellow jackets in the pool. On the first full day of SWG, 3 yellow jackets were dead on their own? Is it a salt intake kill or a surface...

    Opening AND transitioning to SWG

    HI! I'm opening my pool right now. Water is clear after removing my winter cover! Yay! Okay. Last year, it was a liquid chlorine pool. This year, I'm currently installing an SWG. Do I need to shock the pool first before adding my salt and turning on the SWG? Or, could I add the salt, set my...

    What’s the benefit of having an automated system with adding a SWG and robot cleaner?

    Hi, we have a newly acquired pool and planning to DIY the maintenance and add SWG, probably Pentair IC60 since the existing equipment is all Pentair. My question is what value does the automated system add versus syncing up the pool timer and SWG timer? The pool doesn’t get that dirty but...

    Water Flow LED on, but flow switch is working and flow is good

    The Water Flow LED on my Edge-40 comes on about 10 seconds after switching on the SWG. I've tested the flow switch with a multimeter and it is working fine (~zero ohms between the two pins when the pump is on, open circuit when pump is off). It has been working fine for a about a year and a...

    Upgrading from Pentair ic-40 to ic-60

    Hayward SwimPure Plus Reading Zero Salt

    I've read some other threads about this, but I'm not seeing an answer. Our Hayward SwimPure Plus began reading salt levels of only 400, then 200, then zero. Manually checking the salt it is around 3400. We checked the SWG which is 6 months old and it definitely needed cleaning. It is now all...

    26K pool - is 60k SWG too big

    Hi everyone, I've decided on getting a CircuPool RJ-60 PLUS Salt Chlorine Generator after much research on this site and other places. However, before I buy, do you think 60k SWG is overkill for a 26k pool? Should I consider the 40k SWG? I have a single speed pump, not variable speed, so I'm...
