First of all...1st pool and new to the website! Yeehaw. We are looking for a little advice on salt vs chlorine. We have heard so many stories of the pros and cons for both. Our initial decision was to go with the SWG for the reduced eye irritation and softness for the skin, however we are second guessing ourselves at the last minute. The gunite was sprayed yesterday so our pool builder said we have a few days before he needs to order the equipment. We have had people say the salt is tough on the pool equipment, pool furniture, plants, flagstone coping, moss rocks, etc. Some have said it was more work than their previous chloring pools. Others have said they are extremely easy to maintain. We have heard many pool builders don't offer the SWG anymore because of warranty issues. Will the moss rock detiorate over time? Will Oklahoma Wister Medium detiorate? SO many questions.
We are in Houston - so its hot and humid. The pool will be pretty shaded from 3 o'clock til dark. It is roughly 110 linear feet with 4'-7' depths. We will have moss rock around half of the pool with a moss rock waterfall. We are still deciding a color but will be a PebbleTec, WetEdge Pearl Matrix or Stonescape - not midnight blue or black but a deep blue.
We will take all the advice we can get. Lay it on us!
