I am planning on putting in a pool at our house. We live in Southwestern Ontario, Canada to give you an idea of our climate.
When I first had the idea of a pool it was a no brainer that we would use Salt Water. So we went out and got 4 quotes from 4 different companies. 3 out of 4 advised against Salt and suggested UV instead. Their reasoning was that Salt water is going to cause rust and decrease the life of your pool equipment by a couple years.
I can deal with the equipment issues if using salt means less money on chemicals and upkeep headaches, but the rusting has me concerned.
The 1 company that suggested salt uses the Zodiak Duo Clear. If the pool is bonded then there are no issues with rusting.
Another company that we mentioned this to said we were lied to. They offer both salt and UV and said that Salt will most likely rust your pool even if the pool is bonded.
We are stuck with this one big decision and don't know where to go to weed through all the "advertising" to get down to the truth.
Is anyone able to clear up this debate for me
