    On the fence of a swg looking at a Goldine Aquatrol Salt Chl

    Looking at this model. Goldine Aquatrol Salt Chlorinator Above-Ground Pools up to 18k gal. 115v (AQ-TROL-RJ)
    I want to add it inline of my system. I will hard pipe my pvc when my new heater arrives. Is this plug and play? No hidden you need a cell for this too?
    Thanks much

    If you want to mount the cell in-line, get the AQ-Trol-HP. The RJ model is for mounting directly to the return fitting. Both of those include the control box and the cell and use standard plugs. There is a different version, append -TL, that works with twist lock plugs.

    I bought the Aquatrol RJ, the return jet option. No surprises, no hidden options. It mounts vertically directly to the return jet & installs very easily. It doesn't have a flow switch, nor does it need one. I've had mine running for about a week & so far I really like it. Just wish I'd installed it years earlier. Check in the Lifetime supporters section. There's a supplier that will give you a discount. Look for the SWCG thread for the Aquatrol. Email them & they should get right back to you. Mine was $419 with free shipping.

    Thanks all, I ordered and read the ps about this. I don't see anywhere about copper. Do i have to remove all copper before running it? I plan on doing multiple small changes like say 1/8th at a time 3-4 times this summer then a 1/4 at pool closing and 1/4 to 1/3 at next years opening
