So, I have had my pool installed for a few months now and have been slowly dialing my SWG in over time. Keep in mind my pool is shaded most of the day. It only gets direct sun from about 10am to 4pm (estimate I haven't actually looked). I started out with running my SWG at 70% for about 10 hours based on discussions I had with others on how quickly my FC would drop.

Over the 2 weeks, I had it set all the way down to 30% for 5 hours. I assumed it would be quit low when I got back from my trip. Surprisingly my FC was at 6.5, so on Saturday morning I reduced it by another hour.

With sun both Saturday and Sunday, I measured it last night to find out it had reduced the FC to 5.5.

Am I missing something? Using poolmath and those settings, my SWG is producing 0.5 FC per day. If it only lost 1 FC is two days, that means I am only using 1 FC per day

Started with 6.5

+Produced 1 FC in two days

-Lost 2 FC in two days

=Ended with 5.5

Is this possible? Maybe my percent isn't working right and it is running at 100% (producing 2.5 FC/day). That seems a little more understandable.
