I am still a newbie here, so please excuse my insanely ignorant question!
We are doing research on pools and equipment before we take the plunge (no pun intended!) into building our AGP early spring of next year. My question is about salt water generators: I know they turn the salt into chlorine, but I can't find anywhere that tells what else, if anything, they do. Are there some out there that automatically adjust the chlorine levels to the range they should be in? I know there are several chemicals to keep right in your pool (I have learned something!), so what else would we have to have to keep the water clear and the levels right with one? Does this system just disperse the chlorine into the pool and nothing else? Is this set up the easiest to maintain? Every sales person has told us different things, so I am looking for some input that isn't monetarily motivated.
We are very excited about our pool, we just want to have the best time with it and want to be fully prepared for what we have ahead of us. On a side note, maintenance, cleaning, chemical levels, etc will not be a problem; we just want to enjoy it as much as we can without it becoming another child.
Thank you for your opinions!
