What level should I set my chlorinator?
Besides, what percentage should my chlorinator be set to?
We suggest you start your salt chlorine generator at 50 percent output and run it for a couple of days, then check the chlorine level. In a balanced pool, a good chlorine level is 1-3 parts per million. If your chlorine levels are low, you can raise the percentage, and if it's high you can lower the percentage.
Subsequently, question is, how long should I run my salt chlorinator? Salt System Run Times. Your pool system including chlorine generator should be operated often enough to completely turn your pool water over at least every 12 hours or twice a day.
Hereof, how many tablets should I put in my chlorinator?
To use the right number of tablets, always round your pool volume up to the nearest unit of 5,000 gallons. For instance, your pool has a capacity of 20,000 gallons, you would add four chlorine tablets. But if your pool holds just 16,000 gallons, you'd still use four, three-inch chlorine tablets. It's that easy.
