    Salt System for 33' Above Ground Pool-Confused!!!!

    I have a 33' round 52" high above ground pool. It holds around 25,000 to 27,000 gallons of water. I am looking for a salt system, but all of them that I find for that many gallons are only for in ground pools. Can anyone help or offer a suggestion for a system that will work?

    If it's a SWCG system that uses a cell that's plumbed inline with the piping, it can be used for an AGP as well as an IGP. I found two systems online that can handle your pool; the Aqua Rite system and the Intellichlor system. I'm sure there are others available as well. Be prepared for sticker shock though - the bigger the cell, the more you pay for it. You might also want to check with some of the vendors who provide discounts to TFP supporters.

    There isn't any problem using an SWG designed for an in-ground pool with an above ground pool. The install will be slightly more work, but nothing especially difficult.

    I imagine you can also install install multiple units. I know there are some good prices out there on some A/G units. If you can do the job with two of those, you might compare to the cost of one I/G unit. I don't know anything about the quality of the A/G's versus the I/G's, though.

    The Aqua Rite 40K gal unit will also work just fine on your system too and is not hard to install - the owners manuals are all linked to the merchant's site at DBfan187's post above. It looks like that merchant carries them for about $100 more than the Jandy - I don't know much about the Jandy units...
