we just recently re-piped from copper to pvc. so only metals immersed is the light, niche. do i have to worry about corrosion in a swg? i can put sacrificial anodes if needed.

I think it comes down to continually lugging cases and cases of Liquid Chlorine to the Steener or paying up the front costs for a SWG.

Both will need some periodic maintenance.

As for the corrosion in the SWG, some folks keep their water so well balanced, they never even clean the SWG. Most will not corrode. NO sacrificial anodes are ever needed.
