    Do it! You won't regret it a bit. We add about 4 bags of Solar Salt every year to our pool (inground vinyl 10,000 gallons) - get it at Lowe's. Kick it around to dissolve it.
    10,000 gallon inground vinyl FOXX pool - built in 1999. Hayward sand filter. 3/4 HP 2-speed pump with timer. Hayward Aquarite SWG t-3 cell. Love the BBB method - pool has never looked better!

    I switched to a salt pool last year. The water does indeed feel different!! It's nicer (softer). And at 1500 you probably won't be able to taste it at all.
