    What is the purpose in the electrode? Does it have anything to do with changing the salt to chlorine?

    Copper has nothing to do with the chlorine. It adds copper to your pool to help control algae. If all your swimmers are dark headed and don't color their hair (or if they like green hair), AND if you plan to drain the pool at the end of the season, it probably won't be an issue. However, over time, enough copper will build up in your water to start staining the pool liner.

    Thanks for explaining that. Pappy. We're all light headed and greens really not our color, so I think we'll try to figure out how to disconnect it. We also plan to leave it up year round, so I don't want an issues with the liner. Thanks again!

    inhope, I hate to put a damper on your plans, but you should know that many above-ground pool manufacturers, especially of metal pools, will void the warranty if you install an SWCG. You may want to read your warranty carefully.
