I was wondering if any pool owners use a salt system or copper ionization system instead of chlorine. We're getting a pool and are trying to weigh the pros and cons of each system.

We've done some research, but would like to know experiences people have had with their pools. Most of the info out there is from the companies that manufacture the systems, so of course they're a little biased as to which system is the best.

Any info would be great. Thanks!

I don't know if it's considered bad form in here to direct people to another forum, but I've found that the poolspaforum.com is the place to get good pool help. And there are a number of people there who know the alternatives to chlorine sanitation quite well. Personally I've never used anything other than chlorine. Good luck.

They must've not seen it. I recommended a couple of vacation forums ones and they were deleted. I don't get it... The forums were location-specific and in no way a "thread" for diverting people from this one. Besides... that's not a way to "keep" people.

Talking Salt water pools vs. clorine

We were just visiting Phoenix & Tucson a couple of weeks ago trying to find out where we want to relocate (Decided Tucson over Phoenix) We met a few
"average" people and spoke to a couple that said they have a saltwater pool and love it. You do have to replace the equipment every 7 yrs or so but that it is only $1000 to do that and not a big deal from what they said. They also got the automatic cleaner so you don't have all that maintenence to do also. So that's all we know about it. Have you found a pool company to do your pool yet? We want to put one in also when we get moved there .....

We're getting one put in while our house is being built... figured it would be easier that way than to do it a few years down the road, plus our builder contracts with a company and offered a pretty good incentive.

We're also getting the automatic cleaning heads that are installed into the floor of the pool, so that will be nice and low maintenance. The good thing is that these other systems can be installed later, so it's not an immediate decision that has to be made.

Good luck with your move, and try not to let the negativity of some posts faze you or scare you away from Tucson. We've been here a few months now and are very happy - although we'll be happier once our house is done.
