    Switching to Salt

    Well this year I am going to make the switch to salt. After doing some research and going to pool school I decided on a CircuPool system, although its tough to find actual reviews from people who use these systems so any input from people here would be nice.

    My pool is in-ground approximately 20K. The only decision I haven’t made is if I should go for the 30k or the 45k system. I know 30k will be enough but the price difference to the 45k isn’t much. Will the 45k be overkill? Thanks for your advice.

    I recommend getting the larger cell. It will last longer and save you money in the long run. You can get a unit sized up to three times as large as your pool actually is without any problems, and even larger than that with only minor issues.

    I got a Compupool CPCS48 that will go up to a 60,000 pool for $730 delivered. I found the CPSC36 for 40,000 gal for about $650.

    has anyone re-wired a Compupool to 120? I usually don't have a problem re-wiring to 120 but the directions are vague to say the least.

    *edit* nevermind i saw your post, should give me everything i need there, thanks!

    Glad you found the post, yes just make sure it ends up exactly like the picture in the documentation that comes with it.
