I am not sure how much one would save if you have to run the pump 24/7. My chlorinated in ground pool runs maybe 6 hours a day, more if it is used heavily. Electricity is expensive.
As for maintenance....what is the saving?. I throw on some liquid chlorine once a week, not much maintenance to that. Do you not have to vacuum a salt water pool? With any pool, if you don't want maintenance, you shouldn't have a pool.
My wife wanted to convert ours to salt, and while she is the boss on most things, I don't plan on doing it. I put the pool in 25 years ago, and have had no trouble with it. The only part of your comment I might agree with is if someone has a allergy or reaction to chlorine. I still have all my hair and my skin is just fine.
