    Confused on which Goldline model to get

    New Above Ground Pool going in on Wednesday and I am now considering an SWG.

    After spending almost all day reading on the forums it seems like a Goldline model would be a good choice and relatively moderately priced with fairly straightforward install.

    I have seen several different model #s and I am not sure what I need to get.

    Pool is a 27' Round Above Ground Pool (i.e. just shy of 20k Gallons)

    From what I am reading here I should get something that should handle double my capacity in order to run the SWG less.

    I should mention that I have a Waterco T450 Sand Filter and Waterco 2HP Aquarite pump.

    I should also mention that my equipment is about 50 feet from my pool (i.e. that's the pumping distance). Not sure if that matters or not but thought I would toss it out there anyway.

    Please advise.

    Thanks

    I suggest the Aqua Rite designed for pools up to 40K. The 20K model will probably work, but the 40K unit is less likely to have any problems and is a better deal in the long run since it will last longer.

    Ok so is it the same actual system but I need a different cell (ie a 40k cell)?

    Hmm,

    $400+ difference in price between the 18k and the 40k, yuck.
