Hi everyone. New to the forum but I have been reading up on it and pool school for the last several weeks.
We are considering putting in an above ground pool steel/resin hybrid (15x30 oval) which I have estimated will hold 11,160 gallons of water approximately. We would be first time pool owners with this pool and I would like to be a salt water pool.
The dealer I have been going to is totally against this telling me they are nothing but trouble. He wants me to either do Baquacil or the Frog mineral system, which from doing research here and on the net in general I have determined are not good options. He will put in a SWG for me if I want it but he is basically telling me it will be my problem when everything goes wrong.
The system he wants to sell me is a Pentair IC20 but he has quoted me a pretty high price from what I can tell by comparing prices on the web.
My questions would be do I need system this big as my pool hold nowhere near 20,000 gallons of water and should I be worried about problems with rust? He sited a problem with a person's filter basically being welded into the pool because the screws had rusted from the salt. This does sound plausible to me, but I wanted to check with the experts (you guys! ) Thanks in advance for any advice you can spare.
