    how many of you are running the Aussie SWG'S?????

    Just curious as to who on here is running units that are built in Australia, and therefore having to use higher ppm salt levels? I haven't started my SWCG up yet, because the water is still too cold for it, but I will have to add the salt soon, and it calls for at least 5000ppm....does anyone else on here use one that uses this much salt??

    Thanks
    Dan

    No respectable Aussie drink's Fosters. Its the "Old Milwaukee" of Australia, yet marketed/exported to Americans as high-brow.

    I actually like West End and Soutwark better.......yeah my dad travels to Australia's south side and also new zealand for the railroad. those are the two he has sent back here.

    You can hardly find Foster's over there. It's strictly import.
