35,000 pool. 1 hp pump. Sand filter. 1 1/2" tubing. A waterfall, so aeration should be decent.
A friend has a swg system in what is probably a 20,000 gallon pool at a home she purchased a little over a year ago. She almost passed on the house because of the pool because she has seen how much time/money I spend on my pool. In brief, she loves the salt system. Says it's a piece of cake to use and way less than half the time and expense I spend on mine.
I asked at the pool store what it would cost to do a conversion: $1,800 to $2,200. Ouch.
I'm a fair handyman and have a good plumber on stand-by. Could we make this conversion ourselves? If so, can someone tell me exactly what equipment (size/brand) I would need? What I have seen on-line leading me to believe equipment prices would be around $1,000, but I have read on this thread it's best to use a 40,000 gallon system for a 20,000 gallon pool.
My pool is green at the moment. Apparently at this point, I have killed the algae and the green is coming from metals (mostly copper?) in the pool. Looks like I'm going to have to drain, refill, and start over so now would be a good time to install the swg.
Thanks for any guidance
