    Should I add SWG ???

    Hello,
    I am a new pool owner (for a month now), never had a pool in my life.
    From what I read here SWG pools are easier to maintain and in the long run - cheaper.

    Now how much should it cost me to convert my 15000G IG pool to a SWG pool (an estimate)?
    Do you think I should do it (assuming I have the $$$) or just stick to plain BBB method ?

    Getting a SWG is mostly about connivence, they are unlikely to save any money. The price is variable, depending on which model and features you want, anywhere from $500 to $1500 installed though it could be more or less than that depending. I am happy that I got a SWG, but many people are happy with bleach. It is really a question of how much you value the connivence.

    Don't forget the third option.

    BBB with a liquidator. There is a thread on the forum that talks about this and it appears to be a decent compromise for many.

    Where can I get this liquidator and how much should it cost.
    Also can I install it by myself ?

    Thanks,
    I ordered my liquidor this morning.
    It sounds like a nice compromise since I dont wanna spend around $1000 right now.

    I will keep you all updated .....
