    Saltwater Chlorine Generator - more recommendations

    Another question for those using saltwater chlorine generators ...

    We have an Intex 18' round. I am considering adding a saltwater system this season. In addition, I am considering upgrading the existing pump/filter. Which saltwater system do you recommend?

    I have been researching the Chlorease system as well as the Intex system. Both are comparably priced at about $150. Can I use the Intex system with a larger pump than they are normally sold with? Can I use the Chlorease system with a soft sided pool?

    Any help you can provide is appreciated!

    The intex system seems to get far better reviews here than the chlorease. You can run it with a bigger pump. As far as the chlorease on a softsided pool, I don't know, but I wouldn't recommend it anyway.

    I would go with the Intex. The Chlorease seems cheezey to me.

    I've done quite a bit of research as well.

    I went with the Intex. I've seen quite a number of reviews about the Chlorease being difficult to take apart to clean (in addition to some other comments). The intex seems to be a bit more "self cleaning" by design AND since I plan to "hard PVC" my lines, I thought the overall SWG, Filter, Pump and water lines would look like a much cleaner / professional install with the Intex. (In my opinion).

    Thanks for the input. I went with the Intex system. Should be here within a couple days.

    Good move. I've had both, and the Intex is by far a better unit, which sure ain't saying much about the Chlorease. I'm using the Intex with my 1 HP 2 speed pump and cart filter, and haven't had a problem whatsoever.
