Wasn't sure where to post this as it is related to SWG, but not fully. We're having some issues with our SWG and have been for a while, replaced the cell and it's still not working. That's a different post at this point though. Bottom line is that I am having to add chlorine to keep our balance....SWG manual says that if adding chlorine, liquid chlorine is less damaging to the cell, so I've always used liquid. However, now that we have our SWG fully OFF until we figure out what's wrong with it, I am depending on adding chlorine.
We recently had a filter breakdown and had a green swamp, water is clear again and pool looks good. Issue that needs help right now is that with liquid chlorine I simply cannot keep my chlorine numbers up, it just appears to dissipate overnight (literally). CYA is in the 50-60 range, acid is good, etc.
I guess my question is whether liquid chlorine does indeed get used up more quickly and what should I be using until we get the SWG running again. does it matter if I go to a granular (we have the SWG off right now if that matters).
