    review of CircuPool SJ-45

    I was in the market for a swg that would work well for my ig 21000 gallon pool, did a lot of research and found tfp in the process of all the research. my local pool store pushed the Hayward model at a price tag of $1200.00, they didn't seem to offer much guidance or customer support with the unit in general, just told me everyone loves them and they are $$$ and would have to replace the cell every three years for $700.00. I ended up finding a post on here with someone asking what was the best budget swg, and then I found the cirupool series and others. I had it all narrowed down to three models.. circupool sj-45, circupool si-45+ , and the Hayward t15 model, after more research and calling discountsaltpool several times I was talked into the sj45 model, so here is my review of it.

    install was straight forward and easy to do, I am sure most the models are just as easy, the difference being that the sj model mounts with the flow and return from the bottom instead of inline
    no flow sensor to install as I was told it was made into the cell, so that less fittings to install or mess with which is a plus
    cell housing is clear for easy inspections of the cell itself

    one of the reason I choose it over the Hayward was that it was rated for 2.0lbs cl a day
    led lights for display
    clear cell housing to see it working

    so the cons
    there is much info for the unit itself
    doesn't give any read outs
    only has 25% 50% 75% 100% and super cl

    overall I like everything but the end user not being able to fine adjust the output, if I had to do it again I would be up in the air on a unit that had more features then this one, overall its a great unit just missing features I believe would be nice to have

    The cons you list are amount the reasons I chose the Circupool SI-30 Plus. I like to see the readings and be able to adjust the output in 1% increments. It does not have a "clear" cell so I have to remove it to inspect it but, like your cell, I'd have to remove it anyway if it needs cleaning. Another plus for me is has an extended life cell.

    You can download the user manual here if you don't already have a copy. whenever I've had a tech question, I've always found Discount Salt Pool's support to be excellent, and soon had the control unit figured out.
