    My new Pool UV Sanitizer.

    So I just purchased a 17' Polygroup pool and I see I can purchase a UV Sanitizer, or Salt Water System. I was wondering if anyone used a UV Sanitizer and if you did, do you use any chemicals?

    I am about to set it up and was wondering which way I should go.

    Thank you,
    Bret

    I use neither. But I'd get a SWG anytime over any other gizmo. alternative-sanitizers-and-chemical-free-pools-the-truth-t3025.html

    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!

    UV "Sanitizer" is wasteful, at best it can supplement your regular doses of sanitizer. The only EPA approved sanitizers are Chlorine, Bromine, and Baqua. I'd post more but Richard linked to a much better post than I could ever dream of writing. I just wanted to chime in so Richard didn't feel lonely and to give a second opinion

    Thank you for the information. I'll be looking for a SWG tomorrow. I need a test kit too.
    I finally have the pool setup and water is going in slowly. With Temps as high as they were today, I had to take alot of breaks.
    I've been reading the Pool School too and will be picking up some products tomorrow too.
