Forgive me if I didn't search correctly on this topic, or if the info is right under my nose and I'm not seeing it.
I think I may want to convert my chlorine pool to salt water. I switched to the BBB method not long after my pool was started up because of the great info here regarding the high CYA levels due to the tablet feeder that I was using. My pool is great and has been all summer. I'm just getting tired of going out there to do the clorox thing all of the time. It would be nice to not have to worry about being here to add clorox every other day.
Could I please get some feedback/information on how much of a big deal it is if any to switch? Someone told me that all of my plumbing has to be re-done and that the pump may have to be changed out to be compatible with a salt system. Is this true? I thought that all we had to do was buy a salt generator and have it installed. And, of course buy the bags of salt too.
I have a pentair challenger 1.5 hp pump with a polaris 280 booster pump. My pool was completed last November '07.
