    cleaning SWG cell

    I have a Goldline unit. It is connected into the piping with a pair of threaded collars, one on each end of the cell. You are supposed to imerse the cell in mild acid solution up to, bot not over the wires.
    Has anyone found a "trick" to do this easily. A container that fits well?
    I wonder why they don't sell a cap that would thread onto one end and let you pour the solution into the cell.

    They do but it's a bit expensive. They call it a "cleaning stand". I just use a small plastic pail.

    The other option, which I use, is to put a #11 expandable rubber plug into one end and pour the acid solution into the cell and let it soak for a few minutes.

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D
