    Cool beans!!

    I'm sure you could pick it up at your local Target too. Just call and see if they have any.

    If they're out of stock locally, maybe they'll do a free ship to store.

    Target doesn't do ship to store, but if you have a Target card you get free shipping to your house on any purchase.

    Tempted to get this. Don't have a target card. Anyone know if I apply for a target card in the store if I can then just go home and use it right away? Or do i need to wait for the card to show in the mail?

    Copper is not really something you want in your pool. At higher levels it causes staining and blonde hair turns green. Some people just unplug it. I found that you can unscrew the two electrodes sticking out of the top and wiggle the copper bars free. Then I just silicine the holes where the two electrodes use to be. With them removed it improves the flow through the swg.

    The intex is rated up to 18000 gals. One unit may work but two ran inline would be better.

    Re: Intex SWG clearance at Target $99

    Anyone been running one of these long term? IE. Years.
    I have read of some power supply failures on here, but it doesn't seem like the norm.
    How about the cell, how does it hold up compared to the big expensive ones?

    Re: Intex SWG clearance at Target $99

    Just ordered. I hope it's the right one. The picture on Target website is slightly different than the pictures on intex website and other places on the internet. The connectors on the "tube" behind the control box are different. Anyone know what that's about?

    Running them in parallel would be better then in series. See: http://www.troublefreepool.com/does-...wg-t30922.html

    I agree, the picture in the target link looks different from the swgs I have...maybe a new model? It appears that the outlet is at a right angle to the long axis of the cell tube, and it looks like the copper cell has been moved upstream of the swg cell? Let us know what it really looks like when you get it and what the model number is.
