My pool construction was completed earlier this month... and I'm gradually learning more and more about the technology, chemicals, and process needed to properly maintain it. Due to rising CYA with continued usage, I've switched from using trichlor pucks to liquid chlorine. However, I usually end up adding about a gallon of 6% bleach a day. It's not difficult, but if you're busy and don't get around to it, then you'll end up with a problem pretty rapidly.
In that light, i started thinking 'salt'. When I asked my pool builder whether he had installed a Jandy AquaPure previously, he replied:
I know you have to add acid frequently when using an SWG with a high TA and no borates. However, with proper balance, can you get by with weekly additions of acid? As long as my ph is in balance, my plaster will be okay, won't it? Will a 3000ppm salt load leave damaging deposits in my equipment as suggested above? Without proper balance and care, any system can be "bad." I'm just trying to sort through the facts and fiction of using an SWG.Originally Posted by ValleySooner's pool builder
