Sooooooo I want a saltwater pool. I have been told that they suck, that it was a fad, that it's corrosive and will eat the pump, that salt is chlorine, blah, blah. Went to a pool supply store yesterday and I was told that that's not true, that you can use any pump and the insides are plastic and won't be eaten Nor will your plaster! I was also told the solution to the chlorine was the oxygenator thing. But the pool store guy said they don't work very well in our part of the country.
I have a headache. Then last night I saw that you have to make sure that your skimmers are plumbed a certain way bc builders will take shortcuts and that will cost us money over the years. It's very important to us that we build an efficient pool. I want to save money down the road not up front and for a long time.
So what is true? we also want to put in a hot tub but not attached to the pool. Can we bury it? we figure if the guy is out digging the pool, why not dig a hole? Just thinking........
Oh, and what about solar panels for heating and cooling down?
OH and what about the in ground pool cleaner built specifically for your pool? Is it really worth the money????It's made by...Platinum? No. that's not right. Too lazy to run downstairs and look.Paramount. (I yelled down to the husband)
This is a very big investment and I want to make the right decisions. Can y'all help me here?
