My auto-chlorinator has seen better days and instead of replacing a bunch of parts I am considering a swg.
Right now I have a Polaris Watermatic and it is falling apart from 8 years of dichlor running through it.
Is there anything special I need to know before making a decision?
The pool is closed all winter. I am in Illinois. Is there a different procedure for opening?
We usually keep the pool at 82 degrees while open if this matters.
The pool is abandoned for days at a time while I am out of town so I need it to be self-sustaining (no large fluctuations in pH, TA, TC etc.)
I know the cell is expensive. How often does it need to be replaced?
Does it make that much of a difference in water comfort?
What SWG would you all recommend? The more automatic the better.
A lot of questions, I know. I searched through the forum for answers and figured it would be best to have someone who has made the change tell me the pros and cons.
