Does pump Have to run for Pool Wizard to work?

Does the pump have to run for the Pool Wizard to work?
Do you have to test copper levels in the pool?
Are the levels affected by pump run time?
Do you leave the Wizard in the pool in the winter when the pool is not used?
Do you have to add the extra item more often in larger pools (27,000 gallons)?

Yes, the pump needs to run for at least 6 hours a day in the hot summer months.
Do you have to test copper levels in the pool?

No. The copper levels resulting from the Pool Wizard minerals fall below the EPA drinking water limits. The nature of the copper complexes also makes accurate measurement of the copper extremely difficult. The copper levels fall very gradually as a result of splash out and backwashing, so the minerals remain active for up to 9 months.
Are the levels affected by pump run time?

No, the levels are independent of the pump run time. The rejuvenation of the minerals occurs as they pass through the alloy electrode in the unit. The minerals are totally dissolved in the water within a day of the initial installation.
Do you leave the Wizard in the pool in the winter when the pool is not used?

If you winterize the pool and do not run the pump, we recommend you remove the unit until spring pool opening.
Do you have to add the extra item more often in larger pools (27,000 gallons)?

The frequency with which the minerals need to be added only depends on in-pool factors (such as leaks or too much backwashing). The quantity depends on the pool's volume.
A 27,000-gallon pool requires 1 Pool Wizard unit and 1 recharger at startup, and will require 2 rechargers at the start of every swimming season (or every 9 months if the pool is used year-round).

Certification

Larry, thanks for the fast reply.

If the copper level doesn't need to be checked, has the Pool Wizard been tested and approved by and independent organiztion such as NFS?

I see you corporate offices are in Atlanta. I live in a NE Atlanta suburb. Are there are local dealers/distributors in my area?

The Pool Wizard doesn't have NSF certification as yet, but we hope to in the near future.

To find out about availability of the Pool Wizard you can contact Howard at the offices in Georgia.
