    What about salt water pools? is it worth?

    Hey, guys, I'm a new pool owner, embarrassingly don't know anything more about pools yet am a pool lover. I've moved to my new home in Boston, there is a chlorine water in the backyard. It has been a few months since I live here and the pool often requires to add more chlorine. I think it is an additional effort for me to find the time to buy chlorine to maintain the pool, that is a real headache. And I'm almost fed up with this continuous pool maintenance cost. Somehow I've talked to a pool specialist from a swimming pool installation agency here and decided to convert it into a salt water pool. They referred me to an agency of salt water pool construction. I went there and discussed setting up cost and all, I was almost up to choose that, but yesterday I found pool conversion can be done as a DIY project, so I've done a little research on that and found it is possible. Lol, I still have some confusions, that is why I'm here today!what can I do to drain the chlorine water and refill the pool with salt water?I'm running on a low budget to invest more in pool maintenance, so preferably we'd like to cooperate with pros who can help us at a reasonable cost.
    Please comment your suggestions. Many thanks!

    Yes, it's very good, because it has no chlore in it - very useful!

    Salt water swimming pools still uses chlorine! Just in case you didnít know because a lot of people think that it donít. It produces chlorine from dissolved salt! The only difference in the salt water pool is that the chloramines production are reduced. These chloramines are the culprit of eye and skin irritation for the swimmers, they also produce the foul smell.

    Can someone talk to me about the pros/cons of salt vs traditional chlorine? My husband wants to convert, I'm not convinced. The one person he's spoken to so far said it would cost about $1400 to convert our traditional system to a salt system. Now to be fair, the person he was speaking to at the pool store did tell him that salt systems aren't the completely maintenance-free system they're often pitched as, she said they come with all their own issues, that it mostly boils down to comfort level and how you want the water to feel. I know only 1 person who has a salt system that I can speak with, but she's never had a traditional system, so there's no way to compare there. There's nothing (so far as we can tell yet) wrong with our system). Honestly I haven't even been in the pool yet, as it's been too cool for my liking. I've read that the corrosive nature of salt can wreak its own kind of havoc. I've read that salt pools must be drained and scrubbed once a year (the same article did not mention draining a traditional pool for cleaning). I don't think I've ever seen anyone drain their pool around here as a matter of routine maintenance at all, so I'm curious as to whether that applied mostly to other areas where pools are closed seasonally. So, what are your thoughts, kind internet strangers?
