SWG Creating bubbles?

Pretty normal.. Seems to depend on the plumbing and the pump speed.

It is not an indication that anything is wrong.

The IC 40 has an on/off cycle of about 2.5 minutes.. At 50% it makes chlorine for 2.5 minutes and then is off for 2.5 minutes, etc.

I would be interested to know what kind of cycle period your generic cell has.

Thanks,

Jim R.

Since we didn't have a working SWG over the weekend, we had to manually chlorinate the water. The chlorine levels are pretty low still so I'm thinking once the SWG gets it back in the normal range it should (hopefully) clear up some.

Bubbles from the SWG while it is running are normal. That's one way I know mine is working.
