I just started researching pools and looking at UV systems when I ran some posts here. It sounds like UV isn't so great.... but does it help at all? I'm planning a smaller size above ground pool in northern new england. I've always disliked chlorine effects. I am also interested in the easiest system to maintain. Using a lower level of chlorine with a UV filter sounds like it might help.
I read a few negative posts here regarding UV filter but I'm not looking to eliminate chlorine, just reduce it some. Is looking into UV light worth any more of my time?
I also looked at SWG a little. As I understand it the chemical cost is lower but the equipment cost and upkeep is higher making them fairly even in cost. What about difficulty to maintain? Is it easier to maintain a SWG pool or straight chlorine?
