I've read numerous posts about which SWG to choose (when I decide I can afford one). I would want something very basic, but my main concern in terms of budget would be how long to expect the cell to last. I read in pool school that cells typically last 3-5 years. Am I totally oversimplifying it, or does SWG cell life basically depend on the "demand" of chlorine asked for vs. how much it can produce? For example, will the cell on an SWG that can produce 2 lbs/day of Cl last about 4 times longer than one on a unit that can produce only 0.5 lbs/day, or is cell life more dependent on other factors? If this logic is correct, it would be most cost-effective to buy a unit rated for a much larger pool and just run it at a lower % output. Am I at least basically correct or am I out in left field?
The comparison chart at www.saltwaterpool.com seems to be a good starting point.
