    Best SWG for above ground pools?

    Good Morning,

    After being frustrated with my pool to no end (DE filter on the fritz, etc), I've decided to invest in all new equipment so I can actually enjoy my pool for the remainder of the season.

    Along with a brand new 23 inch sand filter and 1.5 hp pump, I'm interested in going SWG for my pool as well, as I do not have a lot of time during the week for general maintenance. Im looking at the Hayward Aqua-Rite, but was wondering if there was a "recommended brand" that you guys would point me to. Thanks!

    I don't have any opinion on brands, but what you see most of here are the Pentair Intellichlor, Hayward Aquarite and Circupool. Occasionally, I've also seen Jandy Aquapure and SGS Breeze. This link has a variety of saltwater chlorinators listed: Full Market Comparison of Salt Water Chlorine Generators for Swimming Pools

    Whatever, you choose, buy the next size up from the size you think you need.

    For example, the Hayward T-Cell-9 may be rated OK, but would require 11 hours of average daily run time. The T-Cell-15 would require 5.5 hours. You may not be wanting to run your pump for 11 hours!

    Pools should not be frustrating!! Good luck with your upgrade
