    SWG question

    Sorry if this is a basic question.

    Have a ig pool build starting next month. I'm looking to do the BBB method and considering a SWG.
    PB uses haywood products. My question is if going BBB, do I need a basic haywood SWG or should I look into the pro or pro plus units which measure ph and orp.
    Pool will be 16x36 3.5' to 8' deep.

    The basic unit is a good choice. I think that the other options can be counterproductive.

    Thank guys. And from what I read, go with the 40,000 gal cell as it will last longer and not work as hard?

    Yep, it lasts longer and it also gives you some extra capacity for "special occasions".

    Although I don't think that automating pH and ORP are helpful. I do think that automation can be a good choice depending on your budget and options. You might want to consider the ProLogic or the AquaPlus.

    We just had our pool built (finished 6/7/13) and the PB installed the basic Hayward automation and SWG. Now we have figured out that we want more control over the system (and the ability to turn things off/on using our cell phones) so we are looking at upgrading to either the ProLogic or AquaPlus. I would definitely investigate thoroughly first, so you aren't changing things only a month after your pool build!

    Re: SWG question

    Still trying to decide. Basic pool electrical panel, 8 breaker slots with 1 timer is $200. I plan to go salt water and looks like a basic aqua rite with cell is $1100.

    Pro logic panel with salt cell will run about $1400.

    So, if I priced it out correctly, it's about a $100 difference to have future options available, and connectivity.

    Does this sound correct?

    Re: SWG question

    Ended up buying a pro logic and 40k gal salt cell. Thank you all for the input!
