anybody with a pool, might want to check out woot.com today. i'm in the business and this is less than half of the price of the one we sell. i can't attest to the quality of it, you probably get what you pay for. i CAN attest to the success rate of saltwater pools, in maintaining clear water. very low maintnance.

actually the salt content is half that of a human tear drop. some people can't even taste it. don't think of ocean saltwater, which is 10 times what you would have in a pool. the unit you see converts it to chlorine, then back to salt. maintains a steady level of pH neutral chlorine, means you don't spend money on pH adjusters. it also drastically reduces the amount of "shock" you have to use. every thing stays more stable, and equals less work for you.

at that price, you'll be saving money by july 2010. if you think of spending what you would normally spend on chemicals. usually between 400-600 dollars.

i'm probably going to convert mine to saltwater when i get our 2009 tax return in a year or so. The idea is to save money on pool chemicals, but several pros i've spoken with say that maintenance is deffinatly less as well.

You people are funny. It's way easier on the eyes to open them in the ocean than in a chlorine pool.

Oh... Wait. Most of you haven't been in an ocean.

My bad.

If you repair vinyl liner pools my liner is pretty well shot.

We have a salt water pool and love it. What was on woot.com that I would have been interested in?

Really? I lived in L.A. for a few years (after growing up in Missouri) and I was always scared to open my eyes in the ocean. ...and that's something I always wonder about in movies...when they open their eyes.

The salt water in our pool is much less painful on your eyes than chlorine water. Also better for the skin and hair.

My aunt just put in a pool last summer with saltwater. Kinda neat really. My inground pool I used to have was just standard chlorine water.
