The salt system is going to create sodium hypochlorite (bleach) from sodium chloride (salt) this system works great! It will make care of the pool very simple. Baquacil or biguinide the generic name is very expensive to use and you have to follow the directions exactly and sometimes exceed the recommendations in order to maintain the pool. If you develop a problem with this type of sanitizer it can take longer than a chlorine pool to recover and it will add big bucks to the cost of using this system. Salt systems a large initial capital outlay but will be cheaper and easier in the long run.
