No regrets; a game-changer. We swim just about every day and pool maintenance and testing is down to around 5 minutes per day, if I test at all.

SWG has seemed like a waste of money. Spending money on one thing versus another. We got ours this May. Have struggled all summer on all chemical levels. PH and Alkalinity is always high. Just by chance we used liquid chlorine and free chlorine started working. Used muratic acid also. We are having other liner issues now and have had to drain pool 😡, lol. So, honestly SWG is just something else to try and figure out!! Monthly chlorine is very affordable.

Interesting @Twinkle toes19 . I do agree it's likely not a monetary savings at all until you get to a larger pool, but to me it would be simply less to do on a daily basis.

Id suggest reading through the link below, it’ll really help. The SWG is by far the easiest thing to maintain chlorine levels since Chlorine needs to be added every single day. Once a week is not enough. Pool care can be really easy if the guides are followed.

Agreed; sounds like Twinkle Toes has an issue with TA (which effects pH) more than anything the SWCG is doing…
