    Can you use solar panels and saltwater system?

    A few years ago, I used to have a semi inground Plastica Timber Pool with a 12kw Electro Heater, but changed to a heat pump as it made a huge difference to the heating costs. My plan now is to reduce heating costs even further.

    So, this time I am having an Intex 18 x 9 rectangular pool above ground on a concrete base, with timber cadding built round it and a deck over the top. I have decided to go for solar heating but does anyone know which type is compatible with a saltwater system? I am in the UK.

    Solar panels are just plastic, so they are compatible. You typically want the SWG to be the last thing before the pool which might pose so issues with Intex equipment.
