    Need to buy a new SWG

    INTEX 8110 SWG has bit the dust. Need to replace it but thought I would pose the question of what might be a good replacement. I could repair this one but can not find any parts source. Intex does a good job of locking you out for repair parts. Would like a system that I can work on myself within reason. What say yee o great and mighty TFP gurus? Thanks in advance. salut:

    Within $300 to $400. I guess another consideration would be the adapters needed for the change as this Intex system has some off the wall connections.

    The Intex SWGs are usually good for about 3 years. They can often be found for around 100 bucks on clearance at Target, Academy and other stores this time of year. I'd probably get another one. Look for one without the copper ionizer.
