chlorine, saltwater or UV above ground pool?
Looking at 15x24 or 12x24 above ground pool in western MA. Biggest reason for the purchase are the kids. Torn as to which to get.
There seems to be some many opinions on each, Im not sure where to go.
Chlorine: not a big fan of the smell (although not a deal breaker), expense of chemicals
Saltwater: more expensive up front, less expensive to run, quick change in ph
UV: only the water that passes through the uv system is cleaned from what I understand. meaning, the above two always have chemicals to kill bacteria floating in the water, where the UV only kills the bacteria, etc in the UV.
what is more corrosive to: wood, plastic/vinyl, saltwater or chlorine pool?
would like to put it next to deck, which ends up being a couple of feet away from the house (vinyl sided)
Any other advice you folks have for a newbie to pools, I would appreciate it. (right now just have the cheope intex easy set)
