I have an AquaRite SWG and I've never had any problems until now. I had to go to Ireland this past week and while away, my wife calls and mentions that she and the kids would like to swim, but the water seems cloudy. Getting service error on the heater also. I haven't cleaned the filter lately, so I figured, the filter is dirty, and the water flow is very low. I had her bump the filter handle and told her it would still be OK to swim. Fast forward to this weekend when I return. I check the SWG panel and no lights are on. LDC display is still working though. Did some quick research and it seems like the same problems most people have - voltage limiter is probably bad on the panel. I haven't taken it apart yet, but the symptoms seem to match. Anyway, It's now 9/23 and I have an algae outbreak - my first one. I dumped some bleach into the pool to get my level up to 15, but that won't last long. I'm wondering if it makes sense to go ahead and close the pool and just forget about this. Will the cold weather kill the algae and the opening will still be easy? I don't want to dump a bunch of money into this now, only to swim a couple more times before closing it. But, if it's going to make opening in the spring a headache, I don't want that either. Which way should I go?
