    Intex SWG

    I see the newer Intex units are also utilizing a copper ion cell. What are the ramifications of that? I can only assume it's for algae control, which a properly chlorinated pool wouldn't suffer from anyway. But won't those copper ions build up and accumulate to levels where greenish discoloration of the water will occur due to chlorine oxidation of the copper?

    Pool: IG 22k- 16x32 clipped corners- vinyl liner, w/ a great board. Built in 3/99, new to me 2/2011.
    Equip: Hayward 3600 DE filter, Hayward CL-200 Chlorinator (empty since 7/5/2013).
    K-2006 Test kit with Speedstir
    Located in Cincinnati, OH. TFP lurker since 9/2011, BBB interested since 5/2012 and converted 7/2013.

    Sounds like your are right on the money with everything you said. Most people here disconnect the copper part of the SWG for the reasons you mention.
