So I'm starting to do my research as to whether I want to convert my traditional pool into a SWCG one. I have a 15,000 gal in ground plaster pool in the Tampa area.
With my traditional pool I add liquid chlorine on a regular basis and also have an automatic feeder for trichlor tablets. So right now my costs are for the liquid chlorine and tablets and also for the replacement of some water occasionally as my CYA gets too high and I have to drain some off.
With a SWCG I obviously have the cost of the system and the cost of salt. How much salt is needed for my scenario and how often is it needed? Also, what is the electricity usage for a SWCG? I read that a SWCG pool needs more acid too, although it's not expensive.
Of course there's many more Pro's to the SWCG but if it ends up costing me the same as I'm paying now in chlorine and I'd have to buy the system on top of that then it might not be a wise decision.
Anyone have thoughts, opinions, experiences they'd like to share?
