    Hey Bradley...the cost would depend on the quality of the unit you install, but on a 24" can be done from anywhere in the $150 (Intex SWG) to upwards of $1K.

    I have used the intex with good luck on our 24' round, but it is low frills and you get what you pay for...I prefer it over lugging bleach/chlorine and was all I could afford at the moment.

    As dman said, whatever you want to pay. Here's a list of some of the things required.

    SWCG, $150 - >$1500
    Assorted plumbing fittings, ~$100
    Electrical power, $10 - $500
    Labor, Free to $500
    Salt, (9) 40# bags. $100 - $200

    They're relatively easy to install if you have room in the piping for the cell and electrical supply for the controller power.
