    AG Doughboy - Salt Question

    We were told by the dealer to never run salt in an above ground pool, as it will rust out the metal frame, screws, etc. Yet I see here on this forum that quite a few are running salt in their AG's.

    For those that are running salt, do you find it an issue with the metal frame?

    I haven't seen or heard about anyone having any issues with rust on the frames of AGPs. The salt level in the pool should be low enough to not cause any problems.
