    Budget SWG for In Ground Pool ~24,000 Gal

    I was wondering what some of the less expensive SWG's were that would work for a 24,000 GAL in-ground pool. I'm currently using the BBB method but I am strongly considering the switch to Salt for the simplicity.

    You probably won't find a less expensive SWG than the Intex, BUT you don't get what you don't pay for (frills.) Here's a link to a past post with info on Intex, and how bleach usage can point you to the right SWG size -

    I would be interested in getting a quote from you on these products. I haven't really set a budget yet and for me that means that I am not even in the stage of looking for a SWG, more like just information gathering at this point.

    That's odd. My pool size is definitely over the limit for the SWG, BUT I don't use as much chlorine as it can put out in one 12 hour cycle so I assume that I could still use it. Very interesting, I have already recommended this unit to a friend for his above ground pool.

    What is your price range if you don't mind me asking? That may help us in pointing you in the right direction.

    Honestly, I really don't have one right now. I'm just looking into it.
