Greetings, all. Horse may be outta the barn as I already have someone installing this today with the new heater but Joyful Noise suggested I post in a new thread to discuss caveats of Zinc anode placement.
In my setup, the tech intends to plumb a t-style one inline between the filter and heater.
For the benefit of anyone interested in using sacrificial anodes, (and if in time, for my wn interest) what's correct placement versus incorrect placement and is this something worth doing when you convert to a swg pool?
(Note I am vinyl, ergo inline, that I realize I'm adding a bit of zinc to the water, that my new heater is cupronckel, and that my old copper heat exchanger developed a leak and obvious corrosion after switching to swg and having well-managed ph at 7.6...and that I'm on well)
-- So I'm banking on the cupronickel being key here, and the anode is just an extra precaution so if its useless or poses problems not worried about the sunk cost
