We've been talking to pool builders in the Austin, TX area, and are surprised about general opinion they have about salt water pool. We have a salt water pool in Florida (lived at the Florida home for 3 years, and still have that home as our rental property now). In fact, we converted from chlorine-based pool to salt-water-based pool and love it. I felt comfortable as a DIYer maintaining chemicals in our salt water pool (and had no trouble maintaining back when it was chlorine-based as well). Uses/purchases TFTKits as recommended by this forum.
With that said, is there really any special concerns about having a salt water pool in Austin, TX area? I wonder if I should chalk it up to just regional difference of opinion toward salt water pool in general, between Florida and Texas, and that it's not due to certain climate effects that puts salt water pools at a disadvantage.
Just want to confirm before I spend money on having a pool built for our Texas home.
Thanks in advance!
