I have a friend whose got a used, 1-2 year old, AquaPure PLC1400 with an APure 1400 control panel for sale. He currently has a 35K gal in-ground plaster pool and he is replacing the AquaPure with a normal puck chlorinator. He says he isn't happy with how the AquaPure system is working, but I cannot attest to how diligent he might be with managing this SWG system. It is also possible that the SWG system simply isn't working for whatever reason.
I currently have a 9,000 gal pool managed with the BBB system. I am perfectly fine managing it this way, except for the daily chlorine maintenance during Spring/Summer, which I do with either bleach or unstabilized chlorine granules - tedious more than anything. Where I live is HOT and sunny from April to September, and during this time of year, chlorine level maintenance is issue #1.
I would not consider a SWG conversion unless the price is right. I suppose it would need to be cheap enough for me to try it out. I just don't know anything about this brand and unit, and I don't know what to look for to ensure it is functioning correctly, and what I should consider for a price, etc.
One thing I definitely want to avoid is installing the SWG, adding salt to my pool, and only then finding out the whole thing is just failing.
Any help here would be GREATLY appreciated.
