It's been a while since I've posted, but I'm sure the same friendly experts are around.
So I got the better half to agree to convert to an SWG and got two quotes:
- Leslies - Jacuzzi J-SS40 (Jacuzzi<sup>®</sup> J-SS40 Salt Chlorinator for Pools up to 40,000 Gallons). Quoted at $1600 installed.
- Warranty Pool Company - PLC1400. Quoted at $1300 installed.
The Jacuzzi system has a reverse polarity self-cleaning feature. Not sure if it's science or more of a marketing pitch, but I thought I would mention it. So does this self-cleaning feature really work and in your opinion is it worth the extra $300? I can't find any literature on it.
My understanding is the SWG does not need to be connected to the AquaLink...but should it? And if so, what are the pros/cons?
With a gunite IGP plumbed with PVC, is a sacrificial anode needed (heater coils are still metal)?
Chemlink C1900 - I remember posting about a year ago and someone said they were not consistent and somewhat troublesome. Is that still the case? Sometimes I am gone a week or two at a time and need to be able to "dose-from-afar". If I went with the Chemlink system, I would also go with a stenner pump for the MA.
Any help you can lend, would be greatly appreciated...
