I currently have an Intex Ultra Frame 32'x16' with a 2650GPH sand filter with salt water Chlorine Generator. I had hooked up my 4'x20' solar panel to this. I was wondering since I have it all taken apart, because of winterizing, if there is a better way to connect the heater. Currently the heated water goes through the sand filter and then through the Chlorine Generator then back to the pool.
Here is a simple picture of what I am currently doing.
Last year, the water temp was great. Just wanting to make sure I have the heater in the correct location. This year I will be adding the Manual Valves and the little browing pipe (for a bypass), and also the leaf catcher with a mesh bag, since there is really no filter before this, other than the plastic mesh leaf catcher, which allows bugs to pass on through.
So basically I have the water going through, the pump, Heater, sand filter, Chlorine Generator.
My question is, Should the heater be AFTER the sand filter, but before the generator? I think it needs to be before the Chlorine Gen, since it produced bubbles, and I don't want to interfere with the solar Heater.
