    Pictures of SWG setups

    If anyone could post up pictures or diagrams of how your SWG's are plumbed in, I would appreciate it. Links to other threads or websites if you know of any good ones. I am thinking of putting one in this spring. My equipment picture if you have any suggestions:

    Thanks,

    Can you list what all those returns are?

    That vertical piece coming out of the heater looks like a good place.

    The six smaller returns are valves for six aqua arches. They can be on or off by turning the valve on the main return. Right out of the filter is a valve for the waste line. Intake side is main drains, skimmer, robot port.

    Thanks,

    You may have to do a little "re-plumbing" I would install it between the valve actuator and the bottom of the vertical pipe coming out of the heater. Not all SWCG's want you to mount their cells vertically.

    Thank you for the input. I am not afraid of a little pvc moving and adjusting. I figured it needed to be after the heater on the way back into the pool.

    Any concerns with the quick 180 the water does on that setup? I could do that pretty easy, just wasn't sure on the water flow that would allow? I am by no means a plumber and have little knowledge on flow, etc.

    That is the way that SWG has to be installed. Others go more in-line (like Hayward, Pentair) with the plumbing ... and they can be installed horizontal or vertical.
