Vicki, my son has a salt pool. I'd never heard of this! It feels so much better on your skin and doesn't smell, 'pool stanky', as my grandsons used to say!!thumbs up

FYI. I hear great reviews about salt vs chlorine, I have chlorine, but have swam in salt. The water feels nice, but tastes like the ocean. However, beware if you have an above ground or metal wall pool. Salt is now cause to void warranties as the salt causes the metal pool walls to rust out very quickly. Last year salt was being promoted for ALL pool types (at least at our our local pool retailer), but this year they are specifically warning against it if you have a metal walled pool because the warranties are now specifically void if using one. As for your dog drinking it intentionally, I would guess he wouldn't because the taste is bad.

B,

Back to the subject of salt water pools, if you haven't already made the change and haven't spoken to her, talk to Kim. Ken changed theirs over about a year or two ago and as far as I know, they love it.

Respectfully,

pat

Barbara, Vicki and others interested in salt,
here in Maryland we have a pool we switched from Chlorine to Salt a couple of years ago, it was the best thing I ever did. now we have an in ground concrete pool and we didn't have to empty it.

The pool company installed a "cell" and put in this box thing that monitors the Minerals... it was a little expensive in the beginning but has paid for itself quickly. Every summer I had to put in tons of burn out when the summer temps rose high and either too much rain or not enough.

Worth every penny and I love it...makes me think of SXM everyday when I float around!!!

Did you make the switch? We did it, costed about 2k, paid someone, we love it, dogs love it! Skin feels great when you get out, and no panic for cholrine! For the past three summers, have never had the pool "change" overnight for no explained reason!

I will ask ken later, but they came and just out some thing on tthe filter, and added salt to it? We didnt have to dump the water. Will find out more. For you. If you dont hear back, give me a nudge just back from therapy and double medicated, it hurts!!! So i may forget!
