Yeah, you seem to have other issues. If the SWG was running at the advertised production and without anything consuming your chlorine, the FC should have risen by 7 ppm over the 11 hours. Even at the reduced production that sbcpool is seeing your FC should have risen by 2.2 ppm. Are you sure that your pool is clear of algae??I ran it all night on 100% - in 11 hours (I was doing four hour test - forgot and slept), it was raised FC by .5
If your pool is losing 25% per day (2 ppm from 8), getting from 8 to 11 in 4 days suggests a total daily production of around 5 ppm in 3 hours' run time. That would be almost precisely 60g per hour, which is what the RJ60+ is supposed to produce.Now that I have my pool under control, this week I had it set on 37.5% for 8.5 hours. My FC went from 8 to 11 in 4 days with getting several inches of rain. Pool math says at this setting SWG should be producing 2.0 FC per day. My pool gets plenty of sun and I have 3.5 yo twins that swim almost everyday. There is no way my pool is ONLY using 1.25 FC per day. So I guess my circupool is "overproducing", or I mean the display setting is not accurate for the amount of FC being generated.
I did the same to make sure. Salt is OK for me. SWG reads lower.Taylor K-1766 finally came and I confirmed twice, the salt level in my pool is 4,800 ppm (24 drops) even though test strips and the RJ60+ both read in the 3,800 range. A pool store test reads 3400.
Did your pool fail an OCLT? If not, you don't have algae eating your FC.I did the same to make sure. Salt is OK for me. SWG reads lower.
At this point for me, either I have algae I can't see that's eating chlorine or something is amiss with my unit. This will be my first SLAM with the SWG. CYA test is giving me fits, due to it being imprecise. Can I see that dot???? I think so... well, maybe not. I'm on the brink of blowing money on a turbidity tester. Once, I SLAM, I think i'll be in a better position to re-test the SWG FC output. Thinking back now, I'm leaning toward an algae issue that might be blooming and using FC just enough to remain undetected, visually. Tomorrow, I'll start the process.
Definitely keep us updated. I’m very interested to see what happens with another brand. Whether this is a problem unique to circupool, unique to your pool, or something that affects the whole industry.Well guys, I'm packing it up. I've tried everything and the unit just won't deliver more than 1.0 ppm FC per 4 hours. I've disconnected the unit and will be replumbing to remove the cell later today. I'm considering my options as far as another brand.
