Pros: Keeps the pool super clean and no smelly/irritating chemicals are needed with this system.
This Intex saltwater system actually came with our 18 x 52 ultra frame Intex above ground pool and it has been a lifesaver. With our old pool, we were constantly having to buy chlorine and pool shock in order to keep the pool clean, but we don't need any of those chemicals with this system. All you will need are a couple of bags of pool salt, which you can buy almost anywhere that sells pool supplies. We usually get ours at either Target or Wal-Mart. This system has kept our pool water crystal clear and extremely clean. It also doesn't cause your eyes to burn or discolor your hair when you swim since there are no actual chemicals in the pool water. There is also no chlorine smell. I think that this system has done a much better job keeping our pool clean than any other pool pump system we have owned. I would highly recommend it to anyone with an above ground pool who hates having to use all of those pool chemicals. This unit is awesome! We plan to use it for years to come!
Here is a picture of our pool just to show how clean and clear the water is with this saltwater system.
