    Convert to SWG help

    I have a 24,000 gallon above ground pool. I'm using a Pentair 320 and would like to look at a SWG for next year ( need to save up to buy it). I've looked at several and they seem to go up to 20k gallon pools. Would an expert here kindly point me in the right direction.
    Thanks!

    We recommend getting a swg 1.5 to 3 times the size of your pool. Most of the common brands (hayward, pentair, etc.) have 40000 gallon offerings and some have 60000 models.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Thanks! I did some quick shopping. I guess I'll be saving some money during the next year and see if I can get one. Looks like they run in the >$700 range. I've got some more learning to do on them as well.
