Admittedly absent minded and forgetful chlorine pool user here. I normally just buy 3 gallon packages of bleach from Costco here for $9. I do tend to neglect the pool and often let FC levels get too low or even to zero at times. I do SLAM the pool to get things back to normal and for the most part the pool stays clean throughout the year. Knowing that I'm forgetful and/or lazy at times, I started looking into SWG systems.
Given the higher start up costs I'm trying to figure out if its worth it in my situation. I wouldn't have to pay attention to FC levels anywhere near as much with SWG's right? That would be a huge plus that I'm happy to pay for. Plus the time saved from running to Costco every few weeks for more chlorine. Any other pros and cons I should be aware of?
