My bad, I didn't see that you average the depth, I though you just put in the depth, so the pool is only 8.5' deep in its deepest end, I thought it was 10'The pool is an average of 8 1/2 feet deep? Are you sure?
Ok you're right, the SJ55 is for a 55gals pool so in the summer if my pool is in fact 35k gals then I wouldn't have to run it as longHayward is a major brand. It is only rated for a 40K pool, so you will need to run it 24 hours per day at nearly 100% setting during the summer.
Try this Chav - it helped me. Don't forget to average the depth, not just the deepest point in the poolOk so now I regret measuring the pool lol, according to the calculator my pool is about 45k gallons.it is a very odd shape so can be a bit over estimating du to widest part of the pool is in the deep end and I kind of went with that measurement for the width
So this calculator says my pool is about 31k gals, btw it asks for 2 depths so it automatically calculates the average depthTry this Chav - it helped me. Don't forget to average the depth, not just the deepest point in the pool
I'm not seeing much benefit in paying an extra $400 for 5k more gallons of treatmentLooks like right now you can buy an RJ-45 and upgrade to an RJ-60 for an additional $1.
IIRC, the RJ series used a lower ppm of salt than the SJ series. And the RJ reports salinity as a specific ppm versus the SJ reporting it as a range.
Ok I will check it tomorrow and let you knowchavezone -- you have not posted a full set of test results. I want to be sure your CH is not high before you go all the way here and add salt, etc. If your CH is above about 600 ppm, you may need a full drain and refill first. Our 250 ppm CH fill water and evaporation drives the CH up quickly.
i guess my take away was that it was all about averages and not exact numbers since our pools aren't 'common' sizes. mine is not free form, but it's a weird kidney. I'd always used the figure of 25k gallons, but once I got involved in this TFP process, I wanted a more definitive number. Others, much smarter than me, have several different ways to calculate - none of which I'm qualified to completeSo this calculator says my pool is about 31k gals, btw it asks for 2 depths so it automatically calculates the average depth
Awesome, appreciate your responseCost per ounce of chlorine generation is good and replacement cells are reasonably priced. Forum members have reported good customer service and longevity/reliability of the SWCG's. An employee of Circupool is also a forum member and responds to issues posted on the forum promptly.
Ok here it goesGreat! Can you post up a full set of test results?
FYI -- you cannot measure a CYA of 45. The vial is logarithmic. Next time, try this:
Once you have your solution ready, back to the sun, etc. Fill the vial to a line, say 80, lower the vial to your waist level and glance for the dot, you see it, add solution to the 70 line, glance, see it, repeat until you no longer see it with a glance. Then use the CYA value one step above the line you read. So if you stopped at 50, use 60 ppm CYA.
The vial is in logarithmic scale. So it is not viable to interpolate between the lines. Just use the whole numbers, such as 50, 40, 30, ....
