I just purchased a Swim 'n Play 18'x33'x52" oval AG pool from Sam's Club and I'm working on getting it installed in the backyard. My wife has several people she works with who have praised their salt water systems, so I purchased the Intex Krystal Clear Saltwater Water Sanitizing system, because we did not want the hassle of keeping up with chlorine.
I have read that salt water systems void the warranty on AG pools. Now, I'm not so much worried about the warranty, I don't realistically expect this pool to last 30 years. But, I don't want to destroy a brand new pool in a year or two because I used salt system.
Are the salt systems OK for AG pools, or should I take the Intex system back and just stick with chlorine?
Also, are some SWG systems better than others when it comes to corrosion and AG pools (e.g. AutoPilot)?
