    Looking to purchase a SWG system UPDATED W/PIC

    Hi all, after many days sifting through all the threads, I have come to the conclusion to purchase the CircuPool R30 system and install it myself since all 5 bids I got from Pool supply stores range from 1800-2500. I have a 14x28 pool 14,000 gallons. Filter setup, Jacuzzi sand filter (8yrs) and Polaris 380 cleaner. For install, from what I have read, the cell goes on the return to the pool. Here is my issue, it looks like I will need to connect the cell right out of the filter, using a 90 degree elbow to go into the cell. Will this be an issue? I also have a blow out valve on this same line so I will need to keep that intact as well.
    Thanks for all the info!!

    Welcome to TFP!

    You don't want the SWG too close to the filter, though it partly depends on the orientation. The main issue is that the SWG produces hydrogen bubbles, and you want to make sure that there is no way for the hydrogen to go backwards and accumulate in the filter.

    If you post a picture of your equipment pad, we can make some more specific suggestions.

    Can you pull back and post another photo? It would help to see the plumbing to the pump and out of the filter to the ground.

    The distance to filter doesn't really matter, what you do need to ensure is that you create a gas trap while plumbing the cell in

    You can see the example here: http://www.autochlor.com.au/specs/AIS_A ... 30_eng.pdf

    I would run the pipe up from right after the union after the filter, put the blow out at the top, and then install the cell on the downward pipe, connecting back up to where the 90 is now.
