    salt water system or chlorine

    We are installing a new inground pool in Pennsylvania (central). We have never own a salt system, our PB is highly recommending one instead of a traditional chlorine system. Any recommendations would greatly be appreciated before I decide to put down money on a contract. Glad I found this site!

    Thanks

    Re: salt water system or chlorine

    A salt water system uses chlorine but it produced at the cell through electrolysis.
    Some good reading: pool-school/salt_water_chlorine_generators

    I strongly recommend one it makes pool care much easier. No lugging jugs of chemicals (bleach) to the pool, and it maintains a more consistent chlorine level in the pool. They typically run in conjunction with the pool pump.

    Does PB mean a tablet feeder when you say "traditional chlorine system"? If so, SWG is world's better. If he means a reservoir and a pump, it's still better. You add salt and let it run. "Refill" once a year...

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Refill means to top off salt level due to splash out or draining to waste/backwashing, not a full drain and refill. That's another nice thing about SWCG. The salt doesn't evaporate or go away.
