    goldline swg

    Has anyone used or heard of aquarite/goldline SWGs? I think they are made by Hayward.

    We are looking at model number gld-45-130 www.pacificapoolsupplies.com

    Thanks

    Sure, they are one of the top three or four models on the market. I think of them as the best unit in the upper mid-range of the market. They have their problems, but then no SWG is perfect and they have as good a reliability rate as anyone.

    X2 on what the boss said. Heyward's contribution, from my experience, was to increase the price of a replacement cell by around $100. Goldline had been making that unit for years prior to their acquisition by Heyward.

    I checked the link and that price was for the power unit only. I think you can do better $$$ wise if you get the unit and the salt cell together.

    I have had my unit for going on 10 years. I wish I could get a transmission to last that long. LOL
    Why is it most people that work in a pool store know nothing about pool chemistry?

    So glad to hear the + comments. Working on getting that Ph down, then will install the SW this weekend, hopefully.

    Like Jason said solid unit! As long as you keep it clean and your water in check you should get 3-7 years out of it. Mine been going strong for 4 years!
