I'm pretty new to the forum but have already received lots of good advice/information. I'll be discussing an equipment replacement with my pool builder this week and want some suggestions on an SWG.
My Pentair system (see signature block below) was installed last April and is still under full warranty. During the original pool build, the contractor installed a King Pool Frog chlorinator and an A & A ozone generator hooked to a Mazzei venturi injector. I've already had problems with the injector leaking air into my system and the Pool Frog tricolor tabs putting in way too much CYA in my pool in less than 1 year (120+ ppm!). I've drained and refilled my pool and have stabilized the chemistry via the TFP recommendations but need a better/reliable source of chlorine. Obviously, my pool builder will, more than likely, suggest a Pentair-branded SWG.
Since the main components of my system are Pentair, it makes sense to me to continue with them for warranty purposes. I've searched the forum and there are lots of opinions out there. Hear are a few questions to the forum:
1. Does anyone have positive or negative experiences with the Pentair IC40 SWG?
2. Are there other SWGs I should consider?
3. Should they plumb the SWG in a bypass loop configuration like I've seen the Digital AutoPilots advertised?
4. What about using the IntellipH system to add MA automatically?
Thanks in advance!
