Our new Sand Filter is in the mail. I see now I want an SWG too but don't want to purchase Combo Unit w/ Intex (return hassles, etc.) Can I just add salt to my pool and hope my pump system creates chlorine? It appears an electrical copper plate is what charges/creates/extrates(?) chlorine from salt. I think my Sand Filter has this plate according to intex parts site. In the combo unit it appears there is a copper plate assembly too. The combo is just 2 units (SWG and Sand) joined via a hose assembly.
So question is...if I just add salt to the pool will my Sand Filter system create chlorine? I can't guarantee I'm getting the copper plate but it was listed under parts replacements for sand.
Thanks for your help!
