    How low do you set your SWG during the winter?

    For those that don't close their pools for the winter, what do you set your SWG to for the winter? I had my output setting at 30% and found my FC to be at 8.5. I normally like to keep it around 4-5ppm. I just turned it down to 5% and will see where it stabilizes at.

    Have mine at 20 for week now and Cl is still high, about 8 now. but have so CC now Just .5 but never had any cc all summer. guess with a low setting does not get shocked back to reg clorine.

    Pump run time drops to 6 hours from 8 and output percentage in the pool goes down to about 8% from a high of about 20% during the heat of summer.

    I have mine set at 4% with my pump running at 5 hours per day. Yesterday's reading showed 2.7 FC with no CC. CYA measures 60. I keep it set at 10% with 8 hours pump run time in the summer, and it gives me 3.0 FC.
