    New SWG needed for semi above ground pool

    We've had a Jandy Aquapure EI for 3 years and the control unit died in year 2 (fixed under warranty) and again in year 3. Entering year 4 it's time to cut my losses and replace it with something reliable. I have an above ground pool installed partially below ground. I'm a little confused as to the difference between above ground and below ground SWG. I'd like to get a Hayward Aqua Right as it seems to get good reviews and is reliable. Will that work or do I need to hunt down an AG SWG? Thanks for any feedback.

    Generally the only difference between a IG and AG SWG system is that the IG is designed to be hardwired and not just have a plug.

    Looks like you likely have hardwired equipment already, so the AquaRite would be fine. I would recommend you get the 40k T-15 cell.

    Thanks for the response and advice.

    I currently have a plug in unit, but I can hardwire if need be. Are there any plug in units that are any good or should I just hard wire and get something with a good track record like the Hayward?

    You are not likely to find an AG SWG that is large enough.

    The AquaRite should be hardwired and bonded ... as with most all IG SWGs I think.
