    UV System, Mineral Sanitizer

    I am going to place the order today for all my pool equipment online. It is too late to go with Salt Water System since I got stainless (not Titanium) heat exchanger for my heating.

    So now I am choosing between UV System (Trident) and Mineral Sanitizer (Nature2).

    Trident is about $400 while Nature 2 is $100.
    Or shall I get both?
    Please help!!!

    BTW, shall I get automatic chlorinator (like Pentair Rainbow) for $60 too? Off line?

    I am ordering it to my friend in Seattle and driving all the way from Canada to pick it up since US prices for any equipment are 1/2 of Canadian.

    Thank you!

    Welcome to TFP!

    You don't need either. The UV is unneeded, and the Nature 2 is a waste of money. The Rainbow is handy to have, but you won't want to use the pucks for very long to avoid excess CYA.

    There is nothing about a stainless steel heat exchanger that prevents you from using a SWG (salt). Your heater will be fine at the typical SWG levels of salt, even though it would have problems with ocean water levels of salt.
