What are the pros/cons of the different pool flter systems. I was looking at saline but I'm reading that salt water ysytems can damage pipes and pool equipment. I also want to get an automatic pool cover and I don't know if you can use salt filters with an automatic cover. My husband was talking about is it Oxygen or ozone??? Any ideas??? Sorry I'm such a newbie.

RE: What is the best filter system for inground pools ??

Filtering is different from sanitation. Salt water is used to produce chlorine and works with any filtration system. Ozone, UV, and ionization sytems are typically supplements to chlorine sanitizing.

The 3 filtration syatems used for pools are DE, Sand, and Cartridge filters. Each varies a little in its ability to filter fine particles. All will work if sized properly.
Good luck.
