A Few Drawbacks
Buying a saltwater pool is not typically less expensive than buying a chlorinated pool.
However, you must pay for and maintain the salt chlorine generator. Plus, the electricity costs will be higher as the generator must be allowed to run 18 to 24 hours a day.
Another disadvantage is that saltwater systems are incompatible with steel pools or those with metal railings that are prone to rusting. This is likewise the case with fully stainless-steel pools, a new type of luxury pool still relatively uncommon in Quebec. The pool should also be installed with built-in steps to avoid having a metal ladder that could potentially cause corrosion.
You now have all the information you need to choose which kind of filtration system is the best for you. Happy end of swimming season!
