    We recommend sizing a SWG for 1.5-3 times the size of your pool. So, those 2 are about the minimum size you should get. Honestly I would suggest you look for one of the 60k sizes (which Hayward / Pentair do not offer). I can not remember who does offer them off hand though.

    I agree I thought about the I60 but wasn't sure if it was just a over driven i40?

    Oh, so Pentair does have a bigger one. Their replacement cells are more expensive and you do not get as much control over the output if you do not have their automation. I think there are "better" options.

    I think Circupool gets some good feedback and they got some bigger cells.

    so you would recommend the CircuPool Si60 over the IntelliChlor IC60

    Re: Which new swgs :D

    With no experience with either ... yes, I think the circupool are a better value

    Here is some older comparisons: http://discountsaltpool.com/Salt-System-Comparison.php

    The SI-60 appears to output a LOT more chlorine than the IC60 ... in fact you may only need the SI-45. And I had read they often have sales going on with a free upgrade. You can find some discussions if you search the forum.

    Yes, Pentair does have the IC60. Just for the record, I am very happy with my Pentair IC40. It seems very robust, it stays clean without me cleaning it, it seems to be the only, or few, SWGs that will make chlorine even if you put too much salt in your pool. All, or most, of the rest require a water drain. 3+ years and going strong.

    I've been using the Circupool RJ30 (now the SJ series) for the past 3 years, and love it. I think they are offering a free upgrade to the next size up at the moment. The RJ I have replaced a Zodiac swg.
