Does resin or steel hold up best for freezing climates like Michigan? I would prefer to use a saltwater system but would go chlorine if steel would give me a longer life. Planning on 27 ft round AGP. Thanks
I think your question should be which pool will stand up to the SWG more so than freezing weather. Salt will rust a steel component pool faster than a resin but you've also got to understand that you wont get a wall made of resin because they are usually steel and bolt together. The post and ledges can be resin.
The 15'x30'x54" Saltwater Aurora oval pool introduces elegant greys with a subtle resin wall pattern that will make this pool look beautiful in any backyard. . Its unique design has never been seen in above ground pools, includes free shipping.
There are no steel parts other than the stainless skimmer/return panel, and the trim on the caps.
@jentiffr24 the pool factory also makes three steel (60-year warranty) and one extruded aluminum (lifetime warranty) pool models that are fully warranted for the use of a salt system.
Also looking for more info on this.. I was looking at the Saltwater 8000 on the pool factory but after seeing alot of the failures of salt panels I am wondering how long they actually hold up and how long the coatings last.. The Saltwater 8000 apparently has an interior and exterior coating but I am also looking at the Aurora with the Resin walls, I am just wondering how durable the resin is to cold climates and freezing temps.
