First off, I apologize to both Sean and Ted for pm'ing them b/f posting. That won't happen again.
We will be installing an 18x40 (trying to downsize it to 18x36 though) ig vinyl grecian lazy-l next month. No extra water features, just solar heat, our only heat source and a SWG (possibly a slide, but not sold on the idea yet).
We have decided to purchase the Intelliflo 4x160 and the Autopilot ourselves to 1) save money and not give the pb the markup 2) he doesn't sell the items we want to upgrade on anyway.
I did call Autopilot cust svc and I have to say they were much more helpful that Goldline. The AP rep told me I should purchase the DIG220 SC48. However, after reading all of the posts re: Autopilot, Sean seems to say upgrade the system to one bigger and this will save on energy use b/c it will be able to produce more salt in less time, the cell will not be overworked therefore extending its life and it also has a longer warranty period. Therefore I should purchase the DIG220
SC-60...is this correct?
Our yard (soon to be pool) gets direct overhead sun with no shade whatsoever during the summer. This is also another reason to get the bigger SWG unit correct? If I am understanding all of this, the more sun and the hotter the water, the bigger demand for the salt??
The Intelliflo 4x160 VS3050 with the variable speed is mainly for the solar, however, will this also benefit the SWG since the SWG needs to circulate for most of the day?
TIA! (and sorry again to Sean and Ted)
