I would appreciate the detailed tech explanation why running a SWG at a low CYA level (30ppm range) is harmful to the SWG cell. If too involved for this forum post could you send me a private message? Thanks much-I tried to send you a private message but may not have been successfulwaterbear said:I know it's a bit late since you removed the SWG but I know why you had so many problems with it if your last water test is typical. Your stabilizer level is 30 ppm and that alone is enough to cause early cell failure and major pH problems leading to scaling and short cell life! This is why Goldline recommends a CYA of between 60-80 ppm. It's in your user's manual (you DID read the manual, right). If you would like a detailed explanation of why having too low a CYA level can cause cell failure and pH and scaling problems I would be happy to provide it but it is technical. What I am surprised at is that your local Pinch a Penny did not catch this! (Actually, I'm not that surprised. I work in the industry. )
Hope this is helpful.
