Hi. I have decided to take the plunge with a SWG and purchased the Intellichlor IC60 for my 20 x 40 33k gallon pool. I'm hoping that someone with some experience can give this newbie some good advice
The pool is aboiut 22 years old, and is plumbed completely with 1.5 inch PVC (2 intake from pool, 1 return). There are no heaters or chlorinators in the loop. The connections on either end of the Intellichlor are 2 inch. I called Pentair tech support, and they said that fitting the SWG with 1.5 to 2 inch adapters would be acceptable as long as the chlorinator is getting at least 25 GPM. My question is this. Should I run 2 inch from my Hayward 30 inch sand filter to the intake of the Intellichlor, then adapt to the 1.5 inch pipe at the outlet, or keep the pipe at 1.5 inch with an adapter at both ends?
