Chlorine generators?

Has anyone switched an older pool to salt and a chlorine generator? i have an inground gunite pool I am thinking about switching.

Thoughts, brands problems etc...

Thanks Mike

Hey Mike!

Getting ready to [hopefully if Uncle Sam sends out REBATE checks quick] convert mine to salt system. Around 1300 bucks for the system plus some PVC fittings, glue, and a six pack for the installer.

I have chlorine now on a three year old fiberglass pool .

Have had the "Auto pilot" brand outta Florida on a previous pool and they are nice.

Couple of hundered pounds of salt at the initial start up depending on pool size and your good to go versus those 80 buck chlorine tablet buckets.

Cell on the salt system needs replaced every 7-8 years to the tune of 6-7 hundred bucks so operating cost are close to chlorine.

But the water is softer, easier to maintain PH,and I have never heard somebody say they didnt like em.

Go for it!

I just renovated my inground pool and installed a new chlorine generator. I got really tired of the old chlorine way (20 years!). It works great. It's an Aquarite system and real easy to use. Just have to keep the salt level between 2700 and 3400 ppm. I checked it 1x per week since June and only had to add 40 lbs of salt. Just keep an eye out for the PH though. With a salt system, the PH tends to rise. I had to put in about 2 lbs of "PH Down" each month.

All-in-all, I would highly recommend this system.
