Vicki - my husband is talking about doing the same thing. He was worked on a few of them and really like it. Not sure what the costs will be, I bet it won't be pretty, but he seems to think it will be worth it??

We've had a salt generator for 5 years. Love it. Does away with 90% of chemicals that you need for traditional chlorine pool. Best part is the way the water "feels". When you get out, you don't have that chlorine smell/film on you.

We bought our/had it installed by Pinch a Penny. We have a fairly large pool (36x16) and I think it was around $1000 give or take a little. There is no maintenance, that's the beauty. Once every 4-6 months or so we throw a 60 lb. bag of salt in the pool.

There really aren't a lot of "components". Electric control panel about 3/4 the size of a breaker box. We get in the 20's sometime, and never gave it a thought. No problems.
It's great.

I converted my pool from chlorine to salt a couple years ago. The payback could take quit a few year if you hire someone to do this. I did it myself and I did it for around $1000.00. I love it. Never add chlorine, just turn a knob now and then. It's peace of mind. No headaches putting and testing the chlorine. The pool gives you a silky feeling, you will tan better and it sparkles. It was well worth it.
