    Question SWG sizing help

    I have a 31' above ground pool, about 21,000 gallons, will the Aquatrol still work for this size? As long as the cell is for 21000+ gallons?

    we always suggest going 1.5x to 3x the pool size so that the device can easily produce enough yet not be so challenged that it wears out sooner.

    We recommend a SWG rated at least twice the size of your pool gallons.

    Yes, to above. This also so that you don't have to run your pump 24x7 to produce enough chlorine for the pool. I'd get one rated for at least 40k.
