Its almost time to set up my pool once again for it's third season! It is an Intex ultra frame 16x48 pool, and this year I want to go with a salt system. I know that salt systems keep the water cleaner and require alot less chemicls to balance it, but i'm worried that the salt water may corrode the metal frame. The pool is only 3 years old this season and is not showing any signs of rust. The last thing I want is to complain to intex about it and try to find replacement frame parts. I will be planning on leaving it up year round this year as i can clean up the landscape around the area and add wood chips or something. I will also have a thru-wall skimmer installed with it.
To get to the point, is an intex salt water system worth the investment? Should the copper anode be removed as others have said in other threads here? Will it cause any horrible rust problems? Thanks
