    Thinking of getting a SWG-Afew questions

    Hi! I am trying to learn more about SWG and have been reading some posts. I was wondering what level you keep your chlorine at with a SWG and how often do you run your pump. We typically like to run ours 8 -10 hours a day. Would we need to run it longer with a swg? Any features I should look for or avoid? Thanks!

    Chlorine level is determined by stabilizer level. My cya is 70ppm and chlorine level is 5ppm. I run the pump long enough for a little more than one turn over of pool. At 40gpm and 10hrs equals 24000 gallons.

    Read the article in pool school about SWG's or read the whole thing if you have not done so yet, then read it again. If you still have questions then post them.

    The discussion of running a SWG with low CYA has been moved to Agree to Disagree.
