    SWG and Heater?

    Will using a SWG in a spa/pool (the water will mix) cause any problems with the elec. spa heater/stainless tube? I may not have the SWG right away but, the water will probably saltwater because it felt good last year.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Shouldn't cause problems. The ones it would cause would be more to do with the SWG's effect on water balance (high chlorine, high pH) if it is allowed to get out of hand. I've seen salt + electrolysis cause some oxidation problems, but this is usually in poorly bonded systems so be sure you've got the flow through tube connected to your pump, generator, etc.
