    Red Service Light on Intex SWG

    Hayward salt and swim question

    I'd buy a real one and install it with 2 unions, then but to extra unions ans connect them with a straight pipe. When your ready to move just put in the straight pipe, and lift the power unit off the screws from the wall. You also have the benifit of Being able to run your filter while you...
