I have been looking into alternative sanitizer for a little while. Was considering ionizers, ozonizers, but I think I will go with a SWG.
I have an older pool, with copper pipes, we refinished a few years ago with fiberglass, about 23,000 gals, and we have a semi automatic safety cover on it.
I was worried about the copper pipes in the pool, with a SWG, but found this thread

so I decided it was safe, as long as I watch my ph
After a little more research, I am leaning towards the autopilot, but not sure which model I should go for.
Wondering if the digital is worth the extra money over a LED model?
Also trying to figure out what size to get. Because the pool is covered, I don't use a lot of chlorine. I have been using Leslie's power powder to shock, and chlor brite for normal use. We mostly use the pool on weekends, so I have just been shocking it late Sunday, if it needs it, and then I add some chlorine on Thurs and Fri, to get it ready for the weekend. With the cover, algae has not been a problem, even if chlorine levels drop during the middle of the week.
But, the kids are old enough now to remove the cover themselves, and my mother in law can watch them, so I would like to keep the chemical levels more consistent so they can swim during the week in the summer.
To get to my question, wondering if the 36 is big enough, since the pool is covered most of the time, or if it worth the extra money to get the 48?
I would like to minimize the investment (to keep the SO happy), but want a nice system that I will be happy with.
