    Buying a used SWG

    Due to the discoloration of the housing I would say that's a well used Intex SWCG. I would think your money would be better spent on a new unit.

    Intex and SWG's

    What size pool do you have? I use an Intex Model number 8110 and don't have any problems with it. Its been shut off over the winter but I plan to fire it up as soon as the water temps come up. Were your CYA levels right, did you have a cover when the pool wasn't in use?
