Someday my walmart bundle will show up. And then I need to decide if to bother with the SWG or continue my successful BBB method as is.
I have read a lot (too much) and it seems there's a lot more maintenance and hassles with the SWG than I have now with the very simple and time effective addition of a few cups of bleach every night. Takes all of 5 minutes. I'm not too put out by that at all.
Seriously... all this flow issue this and adjusting and copper unplugging... is it REALLY less maintenance and less time consuming to go with the SWG? Really?? VS a few cups of bleach? Vacation is not in my future, and if it was I could get the neighbor to come add bleach. Big deal.
I also do not want white salt film all over the yard and patio. Is that an issue at all?
What I really wanted was the sand filter but the SWG comes with. Assuming it ever shows, I'll get the filter plus the bigger pump and all I'll have to do is fill w/sand and purchase DE. I then carry on with my business and continue to dose with bleach for the next 6w.
For those who have done both... I ask if it is worth bothering with. I could likely sell the SWG and recoup most of the cost of the filter and pump.
