So the saltwater system lasted one season, died the first day this season. In the meantime, the Saltwater System has gone from $139 to $199. This is approaching the cost of the pool!
We bought this product 2 years ago, and are opening our pool for the 3rd summer. This system works great. It is simple. No burning sensation for the kids. It never tastes salty, different than a regular pool, it actually makes the water feel soft. As long as your regular filter pump that all pools have stays maintained, this should work like a charm. You do need to dump in like 50-100 lbs of salt in the beginning of the season (~$15), but other than that, no mtce whatsoever! Recommend to anyone I know getting a pool.
I don't understand the other reviews that reflect negatively on this product. I have used my Krystal Clear Saltwater System for over two years. It paid for itself in the first summer alone. I now spend $30-$40 per year on salt compared to $30 per month on chlorine. I have the 24' diameter pool with a 2500 gph pump and the whole system works great. The water is soft and doesn't burn the eyes. The chlorine level is much easier to maintain. I now vacuum the pool and check the chlorine level and pH once a week. If I replaced my saltwater unit every year it would still be cheaper than chlorine.
The salt water filter kept showing we needed to add salt - when we called the company they said they would send us a new one - no questions asked.... when the new one was plugged in it worked 1 week before the salt sensor said to add more salt....we had just added salt. Never got the issue resolved they have been sitting in our garage, we used chlorine tablets the rest of the season. We now have 3 "new" pumps that we can't use! Will be trying to get our money back next.
This item was purchased in June 2011 by the middle of July 2011 we were using chlorine tablets.
