    this article touches on it. I believe the experts will need more info about your pool and decking, features, etc to give you more exact info (pictures would be best I believe).

    SWGs don't have anything to do with staining.

    I'm not sure where the idea that SWG's cause staining comes from, but no one that I know of has that situation. If that was the case there would be LOTS of us upset about it!
    You might say that we tend to be a "vocal" group 8) ?

    I have a Goldline (Hayward) AquaRite and Goldline Control Panel, I think that Jason has an AutoPilot with their control system. There are others.

    The only "bad" thing that I can think of is that the PH has a tendency to rise faster than in a non-SWG pool, but that's something that can be resolved with a little bit of muratic acid.

    It makes the pool much easier to take care of, in my opinion.
