    Limited info on reverse polarity.

    I've been flipping the polarity manually for a few months but would like to incorporate a DPDT timed relay.

    Anyone see a issue with this?

    Are you taking about a SWG? If so, all the modern ones automatically reverse polarity to help keep the cell clean.

    Intex, on its 3rd year.. Well the swg plates are on its 3rd year. Year 1 the gfci went, and last year the internal board went out. So it's on a outdoor utility timer with a gfci on the pool circuit.
    The system kicks on 2 hours before I get home from work. When I arrive I flip a DPDT switch. Doing this I only end up with the center plates becoming partially clogged about every 7 months.

    18'x24" AGP Aftermarket pump hard plumbed, also a in-wall skimmer was added last year.
