    Plumbing help needed to install SWG from older ComfortZone/Hayward Heater

    Ok, this is so frustrating. Here is what I am thinking of doing. Cutting the outlet copper a few inches below the bend. Soldering in a copper flange, inserting a plastic union, installing the swg, cutting the lower adapter adding another union?

    Salt Chlorinator install...anything I need to know before I install?

    I assume you open the drain valve, to release any pressure, then turn the jandy valve to close? Then I should be able to cut the pipe and start installing? I downloaded the PDF install instructions but it doesn't mention anything about the valve/water lines etc
