I'm trying to decide if I'm going to jump on board or not. I hear that people are saying the correct amount of chlorine is used but I am also thinking that I am hearing that more chlorine is used in this method. I hate the idea of chemicals and try to avoid them at all costs. Hence, I looked into trying to get a natural pool but that seemed really hard to do in Phoenix not to mention not wanting to be a guinea pig in the area. I felt as though UV and salt was the next best thing and I'm seeing the UV was probably a waist and the salt water is still chlorine, but maybe it's psychological although speaking of "fillers/additives" I always assumed there were additives to tabs/chlorine and none for a salt pool. Let's leave needs, CLs, levels aside. what would the chemical comparison look like if I were to stick with my salt water pool and traditional methods versus this method? for example, I have algae right now and the chlorine cell after running 22 hrs was still only reading 2.0 chlorine. maybe my cell isn't producing well and I'll get a new cell and be back on track or if the cell is good, it's going to be a long summer seeing the water is not even warm yet and I guess traditionally I'd shock it? Seems easy but I don't like the idea of the chemicals. With this method it seems as though there are lots of steps and more chlorine although less extra chemicals that the pool store would likely be trying to sell me? We r bringing a sample of the water tomorrow so we'll see what they try to say. It's late and I"m falling asleep so I hope this made sense and sorry for hijacking the thread. Thanks!
