This may come as a surprise to some, but not everyone loves salt chlorine generators. Each pool owner has their reasons for not liking salt pools. Some people experience rusting, others have softstone decks, or just don’t like plunking down a few hundred dollars for a replacement cell.

Does anyone know how a pool works? I mean, specifically. Do you truly understand the journey of swimming pool water?
