*Opinions greatly appreciated*
I am repairing an 18x33 above ground pool that was hit by tree during Hurricane Irene -- installing a new liner (after 20 years!) and replumbing is now necessary, and I would greatly appreciate advice on whether to add a SWG now.
For the past 15 years I have been very happy with chlorine -- Bioguard Smart Shock once a week, Bioguard Silk Sticks once a week, Bioguared Backup algae once a week -- never any problems. I am in upstate NY and the pool is open for 4 months each year.
A Pool Pilot AG will cost me $700 installed, and it will take me at least 5 years to break even on this cost vs. Bioguard supplies.
Does the SWG have any real strong points in light of this? Maybe the liner will fade less? I never have any problems with algae, etc, and if I am away for a week, someone will add the Bioguard chemicals for me.
Many thanks for any opinions.
