    'Saltwater' Ready Above Ground Pool Wall

    Hello all! :geek: We just retired our Intex Ultra pool due to the frame rusting into 1,000 pieces and are looking for something more permanent. I installed a SWG in early spring and it didn't take it long to rust the pool apart. We couldn't keep up with the standard chlorine pool and the SWG...
