    Fresh water only Filter?

    Was just out doing my pool thing, actually checking pressure on filter after adding baking soda yesterday, and noticed a label. The label said "filter suitable for fresh water pools only". It is an Astralpool Millenium 22" 250 lb. sand filter.

    Why would a sand filter be labeled for fresh water pool only? Will this prohibit me from converting to an SWG down the road if I should so decide to?

    It means it's not for use with ocean water pools (like on a cruise ship, for example); an SWG would be fine.
