Hi, we are looking to install an IG 16 x 28' liner pool. I am new to all this so please bear with me. We are looking at a (Pacific) Regatta pool although places in our area also install Fort Wayne IG liner pools as well and that would be another option. It will be surrounded by cement on all sides.
If we use the pool company we plan to use, they offer their selection of Hayward (and maybe Pentair or something like that) pumps etc. I'm wondering about what is best? We want something that will not hurt our children's eyes or skin or turn their hair green. We do not like chlorine and thought we wanted salt but I'm confused at this point and the price went up when we told them we wanted salt.
Then we recently swam in a neighbors Mineral Spirits pool and enjoyed that and got out without any eye/hair, etc issues and also swam in a pool that was ionized (?) and it was great too.
So, would you please share your opinions?
This company pushes baquacil which I know we do not want and they also did mention the Nature 2 system thing when we pushed the salt and mineral and ionization options. They seem to have an agenda and of course want us to buy their product. We need the pump/filter system regardless or what type we choose, right? I would love to not have to do too much to tend to the pool, my friend with the mineral spirits just dumps something in once a month and puts her vacuum in daily and it stays beautiful but her pool is huge in comparison to what we are getting. We are on a budget but also want a quality system for the pool of course.
