    Recommendations for a new SWG system

    I'm just getting ready to purchase a SWG. I'm considering the sgschlorinators.com Breeze 540 for my 20,000 gallon fiberglass pool.

    Any current feedback on that system or any suggestions of a better one? Looking for overall long term value, minimal maintenance of the unit, and ease of use. I intend to install the unit myself.



    My filter is the Hayward s-244T with effective filtration area of 3.14 sq ft, a filtration rate of 20 GPM/sq ft, Filtration and backwash design flow rate of 62 GPM, maximum working pressure of 50 psi; holding 300lbs of sand.
    My Pump motor is the 1 HP A.O. Smith 1081 design ST1102 single speed motor
    My Pump is the HP Hayward STX 2600 super pump
    My Cleaner is the Dolphin Diagnostic Serial 75674AS13
    My Pool is:
    16 x 43 fiberglass made by sun pools of Florida (actual 154 x 42)
    644 sq feet

    I don't know much about the Breeze. It looks familiar, but whatever I am remembering had another name.

    None of them are perfect. Every brand has problems at least occasionally.

    We recommend getting a unit that is 1.5 to 3 times larger than the pool you have. So the size you have chosen is appropriate.

    I should've asked this before, how much are you budgeting for this project?

    Prices I've seen on Amazon for the equipment are in the $400 - $900 range, so that is what I am expecting to pay, but I am willing to pay slightly more for a system that requires the least maintenance/repair.

    I've just recently received my Compupool CPX-36 replacement for a CPSC-48. I'm happy with it, it doesn't have bells and whistles, it produces chlorine gas. I looked/considered at getting the sgschlorinators.com Breeze 540 system as a replacement if the Compupool didn't work out.

    the 540 cell will give you 0.3 ppm free chlorine per hour at 100 percent in 20,000 gallon pool
    during peak pool use you will need to run at least 7 hours per day at 100 percent output more likely 10 hours
    i would probably get next size up

    50,000 litres 13,000 gallons

    are you taking care of your pool or is the poolshop taking care of you
