I am newbie pool owner. Actually about a year and half into owning 1st pool. I am getting more tired and slack with chlorine testing/adding. I stopped using pucks a while ago to keep CYA in check and been Am i just being a lazy pool owner?
Anyhow, So I have the green light from the boss (wife) to spend some $$ (she feels badly I a working so much OT and tired of me complaining [edited by SeanB] about pool) so I am thinking SWG. I have read tons and learned tons here but have a couple questions. First, I am on the fence trying to decide if I want to do a basic system or go total control route. I fear if I just add a basic system I will get tired of adding acid, adjusting duty cycle etc. sort of defeating the reason for doing it in the 1st place. Thoughts from those who have done it, regrets, opinions etc.
I was also reading the positive posts about the liquidator and was thinking of trying that 1st.
We have a spill over spa and one concern with basic SWG is the way the plumbing is constructed for our pool it would be very difficult to add the cell to the pool only return (and get required straight run before cell) . So I worry if I plumb the cell where puck dispenser currently resides (easy) I will super chlorinate the water when running in "spa only" mode. Obviously the total control system solves that by adjust cell output real time right? Sorry for long random thoughts post.
What do you think?
