    Best Salt Water Chlorinator (For the Money)

    I'm soliciting opinions for the BEST Salt Water Chloriniator for the MONEY. Sure, the best chlorinator may automatically dispense and be remotely monitored by your IPHONE. However, I'm looking for the best saltwater chlorinator for the money. I am most interested in value....if that exists. Maybe after my research I'll find that a cholirinator cell is....well, simply a cholinator cell....and it doesn't really vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. If that's the case, I'll just get the the one which has the best warranty. Thanks for the input.

    If you pool is small, then the intex is a great value, I am on my third year and the intex cost me ~$150...however if your pool is big, skip the intex.

    Circupool is probably the best bang for your buck from reading the forums if you are talking in ground pools. It's does not have all the features of others but from reading it does what it's suppose to do well.

    Thank you very much for the replies. Yes, I should have said I have an inground pool.

    I use Compupool. I was looking for something inexpensive for my inground pool.
    Very basic features, but works. There are some that have had issues, but if it's a new unit the manufacturer takes care of it under warranty.

    Compupool is what I meant. Get it and the circupool mixed up. Circupool is the one that is a few hindered more but has a little more features.

    Compupool, go large. CPSC48 can be had/delivered for less than $750. No fancy bells and whistles but it does produce chlorine, so you don't have to lug jugs. Life is good.
