    Which is less in montly cost straight chlorination or a SWG?

    I'm trying to decide whether I should go with a SWG vs Chlorine on a 284 sq ft pool. Now that I think about is there any truth to the issues of chipping etc on flagstone?

    I would go with the SWG. The extra salt in the water can occasionally have an effect on soft natural stone above the water line. Most people never have a problem, but occasionally natural stone can be seriously damaged. Sealing the stone can help prevent problems. Even without salt, softer natural stones sometimes have problems.

    Thanks so much. I'm going with a very hard natural stone.
