Hi, we just had 2 pool builders come out to our home to give us estimates on a new inground pool. We are in central California if location matters to my questions
Two concerns I have regarding using or not using a salt water chlorine generator are...
1) How the splashing of the water may affect vegetation. We will be having very minimal concrete work around the pool, no more than 3 ft around, and we have a pretty large vegetable / berry / herb garden all around it. And fruit trees behind the pool. I did read that salt water being "bad for plants" was a con. Does anyone know anything about this? I also wanted to landscape around the pool w/native grasses and sage and such.
2) I have three young kids and they all have mild to moderate eczema (as does my husband). Whenever we swim at someone's home, or at the local water park, their skin can get pretty irritated. As long as I am good about rinsing them, and immediately applying moisturizer it is okay. But I wonder if the SWG may be better for their skin. Does anyone have comments on SWG being significantly better for dry skin? Though water in general is not great for eczema, the triple digit weather from May to October feels more and more brutal each year and my kids LOVE swimming.
