    Salt Generators

    Howdy,
    Am excited to meet everyone. First of many questions. We are putting in our first pool (13000) and am abit confused as to which Aqua Rite system to purchase...Don't know if going with the Aqua Rite Pro is overkill....and should we go with a 25000 cell or something smaller

    Thanks

    Oversizing the SWG cell 2x-3x your pool volume is always a good idea. A 25k gal unit would work very nicely on a 12k gal pool

    I would go with aqua rite pro vs the regular aqua rite since the pro can utilize the sense and dispense. You may not want it right now but it's nice to have the option to "upgrade"

    The problem with Sense & Dispense is it uses ORP. ORP and CYA over 30 are not a good mix. Cells do better with CYA at twice to almost 3X that. Intelliph from Pentair will be better with cell fed systems at half the cost of S&D, IMO.

    I've got a CPSC48. It's a basic unit low price, easy to install. Runs with the pump about 7 hours a day. It doesn't have any fancy bells or whistles but does the job.
