My family wants to switch to a saltwater system. I want to our local pool store (Pinch A Penny) and the guy said the best system they sell is the Hayward SwimPure Plus.
I'd estimate our pool to be 15,000-20,000 gallons but I'll need to do measurements to find out a more accurate approximation. I've read through this forum and see you recommend 1.5-3x for the cell capacity. Therefore, I'd go with the highest the store sells (40k).
Is Hayward a good brand? How about this particular model? Here it is on Hayward's website: http://www.hayward-pool.com/pdf/lite...us_TriFold.pdf
I was quoted $1,150 for the system (not including installation costs).
FYI - My goal is to read through your forum and learn how to monitor and maintain the pool myself. However, I am not technical or much of a handyman so I really need someone else to install the system. That is why I went into my local pool store to find out what they sell. I see that you all advocate doing your own pool maintenance and that is my goal...I just need to learn how!
Oh, if it helps we live in Florida - outside West Palm Beach.
So...do you think this is a good buy? Is Hayward a reliable brand for a saltwater system?
