I have an Intex SWG that we used for our 18' round pool (intex frame). The last season we used it (last year), I ended up supplementing with tablets (this was before I really started learning about chemistry for the pool) because we thought it might not be working correctly.
The plates are clean, and look solid. Is it possible I just wasn't running it enough? Any thing else I should be looking for to verify it's working? We are still in the construction process of our new 15x30 AGP, and I'm deciding if I should go ahead and replace the intex with a nicer SWG like the Aqua-Trol.
I'm actually not even sure the intex will handle this pool. With the deep end, I'm calculating somewhere in the 13,500 gallon range, and I think the intex is good for 8000 (although I can't find any definitive answers there.
Any advice for whether to fuss with this intex or to move on to a new one?
