    I need help deciding

    Im looking into getting a SWG this year and I need help picking between three circupool models.

    The SJ30, RJ30, and universal 40 would all fit my pool just fine but I can't figure out if all the bells and whistles on the RJ model are worth the extra cost. Or if the universal is a budget way to get a cell 4x the capacity of my pool which should in theory last me a very long time.

    The SJ30 design (inverted U) is one where the hydrogen gas collects in the cell if you operate a pump on low speed. Several people have had an issue with this and the cell eventually shuts off. Also, the clear plastic could possibly allow UV ignition of the hydrogen gas which I think I remember one person posting happened to them. You could invert the cell so gas does not collect in it but if it were me, I would go with the other design.

    Non exploding design is a good selling point.
