    SWG and Aluminum Pool


    Sorry to start another thread on this topic, but most of the threads I found involved "steel" pools, not aluminum ones, like mine. I have a brand new 24' aluminum Premier Collisium pool (formerly Esther Williams). It is 100% aluminum - walls, extruded rails and plates.

    Can I use a SWG system safetly with my pool? The warranty actually calls out "steel" pools specifically, but does not mention aluminum. Here is a quote from the warranty sheet:

    "The present warranty does not cover the following:
    f) Damages caused by the utilisation of a salt water chlorination system in combination with a steel pool structure (top ledges, uprights, joiner plates, wall channels)."

    What do you think? I also have an AquaComfort heat pump, but that uses a titanium exchanger, so should be OK.

    Re: SWG and Aluminum Pool

    There are very few problems with steel pools and an swcg, so and all aluminum pool should fair much better. If you're concerned about the warranty, I'd call or email them and ask that specific question and see what they have to say.
