Well our slate pool coping has finally eroded to the point where I need to replace it. All of the company's bidding for the job have stated that I'll probably have the same problem (albeit to a lesser degree) if I stay with a natural stone and SWG. This leaves me in a bit of a quandry. Other than the coping issue, I've been really happy with my SWG. It's been really easy to keep my pool in balance.
I need to find an alternative to the SWG. I had an OK run with BBB when I was trying to get to the root of our coping problems, but the frequency of adding bleach was problematic. I'm usually out of town about 1 wk per month.
So I'm thinking about installing a Stenner pump chlorine feeder and integrating it into the existing Hayward pro-logic automation system. There's still one empty auxilliary relay so I figure the stenner pump could be wired in to use the existing pool timer & remote. The pool pump is a 2 speed that usually runs 4hrs at high, 6hrs low. I'd also feed the chlorine in through a tapped section of straight pipe that would lie right where the SWG is currently plumbed in.
Any thoughts on this type of set up (ie. 120v vs. 240v pump). It seems fairly simple.
Thanks in advance.
