    Intex SWG with E.C.O -- any benefit?


    I'm picking up an Intex Ultra Frame 18' x 48" pool tonight. Setup won't occur for another 4-6 weeks, but I'm collecting items as I can. I want to try an Intex Salt Water Cholrine Generator. There are two types (ignoring the various sizes/chlorine generating capacities) that I see. One is the standard version, and one has an added feature that they call Electrocatalytic Oxidation. Pricing is pretty similar between the two.

    Is there any benefit to this type vs the 'plain' Intex SWG? This one makes 12g/hr of Chlorine and goes for $139 shipped.

    Here is the ECO model:

    At a quick glance it seems to be using big science words to describe what a SWG does anyway.
