    Converting to saltwater pool

    What should it cost roughly to convert to a saltwater pool (equipment and labor)?

    I'm generalizing some but probably 700 or so for an swg and maybe 500 to install for a pool that size.

    That's pretty subjective but many people here on the forum do it themselves

    I think $700 is a bit in the low end, but it depends on the brand and bells and whistles that you desire.

    My pool guy wants 1700 for goldline t-15 systems, labor, and salt for start up
    Does that sound right?

    I think that Hayward system is about $1000 online. Salt is maybe $100.
