I am about to purchase an above ground pool. It will be on a waterfront property (saltwater river). I am looking at a doughboy 28 ft round desert spring with sand filter with 1.5 hp pump. I believe it is a doughboy package. I was going to use an automatic chlorinator. The package costs 5,500 and the install is 1,900. I am worried about rust and the longevity of the pool since we are right off a saltwater river. we will be building a deck around the pool. What are the thoughts of the members here?
We were advised against a salt generator due to rusting. Thoughts?
