We have an 18' circular intex metal frame pool, 48" deep. Over the weekend we saw an option at BJ's to change the pool from chlorine to salt water. We have a friend with a salt water pool (in ground) and the kids loved it during a visit last summer, so this is attractive. The new system is a "stand beside" the existing filter/pump system. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any issues with changing over from chlorine to salt water? The new salt water add-on was about $170 (and I can't find it on BJ's online, but it was specifically said for intex pools).
Any info would be greatful . . . would the change effect the liner? what kind of cost would I be looking at vs. Chlorine (where I have to buy the 3" tablets and shock).
