We’ve had an above ground pool for a number of years. The kind that you take down every winter. We have always enjoyed having a pool, but adding chlorine is such a hassle. Plus you have to worry about the kids getting into the chlorine while its floating around the pool in the dispenser. So when I saw this last year, we bought one:
A saltwater system that creates chlorine without adding chlorine to the pool. You put the prescribed amount of salt in the pool. Not table salt, the kind of salt you use in water softeners. The machine makes chlorine from the salt.
We really love this system, it is so much easier. You set the machine for the number of hours need , and it goes on every 24 hours. You can also change the time if needed. You still have to check the chlorine level and ph level regularly. Using this system, has cut down on the amount of time I have to spend on pool maintenance.
I bought our saltwater system online from Walmart last year, and I see that they have it in stores now. You can find them other places also.
This year, the kids were so excited to have the pool set up, they couldn’t wait for it to fill to go swimming.
