My wife has finally convinced me that the kids are old enough and their swimming lessons have progressed far enough that they are outgrowing our current seasonal pool. We will use it for one more season and I am looking to put up a permanent pool next spring. So... I am out in the boonies. The only code requirements I have from the county are an IGP needs a minimum 4' fence with a gate that has an automatic lock on the pool side. An AGP needs either a removable ladder or if there is a deck a gate with same requirement as IGP. The IGP is outside of our budget. I am an experienced DIYer and can do plumbing, electrical, etc. If I were to buy a kit, is installation that difficult? I am loosely planning right now to pull 60A out to the pool for pump, etc. Will that be enough for the pump and a chlorine generator? That leads to the next question... the chlorine generator makes the chlorine from salt... when the chlorine breaks down, it turns back into salt no? So do I now have a salt water pool or is a salt water pool different with a higher PPM of salt? I've read vaguely about salt water pools. Are they different or just pools that have chlorine generators? Should I plan for a water line to the pool, or after it is filled will a hose be enough for cleaning filters, etc? I am on a well with iron in the water. This is a constant issue with the current pool. Should I add a water softener? I will probably get the water trucked in to fill the pool the first time.
