Greetings all. Been reading through posts for several hours...this is a great informational site that I wish I'd found years ago.
We have been looking to install a SWG in an inground vinyl pool (approx. 30,000 gallons) at the home of our retired parents. Aside from liking the way a salt pool feels, we are looking for something that can help simplify maintenance. (Minimizing the amount of testing required, Pump and Pool Cleaner on timers, etc.)
The local Pool Store recommended a Goldline Aqualogic Plus unit as the best option for us, with a quoted price of $2000 for the unit and installation, plus another $3-$400 for an electrician to come separately to wire the unit to our existing DE filter and pump. Pool has an unpowered cleaner that connects to the inlet pipe inside the pool that would be on a timer as well.
Does this sound like a reasonable price? Or does this price sound high? I see what retail is on a unit from an online store, just not sure whether the installation involved justifies almost an additional $1000 in costs for plumbing and electrical work.
I would appreciate anyone's thoughts on this. I've gone back and forth with different models/options...paralysis by overanalysis I guess...
Thanks for your time!!
