15 years after salt systems burst onto the swimming pool scene it is pretty clear that swimming pool owners love their salt systems. Swimming pool salt systems use salt (disolved in the pool water) to allow pool owners to generate their own chlorine instead of going to the store to buy chlorine. This has the potential of saving pool owners hundreds of dollars per year which means that the salt system could pay for itself in just a few years. The only problem is that the salt cell which is the part of the system that converts salt water to chlorinated water can go badin a few years andis very expensive to replace.
The new Expert Series Salt System for swimming pools was introduced in early 2016. This system cost a few dollars more (roughly $90 more) but comes with a beefed up warranty (4 times longer than older models). Essentially, the Expert Series Salt System is just built better so that it will last longer. If you are thinking of adding a salt system to your swimming pool don’t make the mistake of buying an old fashioned system…go with the expert series.
