Check with a pool company. The change involves a change in chemicals as well as with the pump and circulating equipment. The salt water system is much easier to maintain, the salt is cheaper than the other type of chemicals and it is easier on your pool surface. A salt system IS a chlorine system. chlorine is still the sanitizer. You have the salt so a chlorine generator can make chlorine instead of you having to buy it and deal with it. When you add up the costs, a salt system normally is NOT cheaper per year with replacement and initial outlay costs. The cost for a salt system normally runs from $600 to $1200 PLUS installation. The pump and other equipment does NOT have to be changed. Electricity has to be supplied to the new salt control panel and some replumbing to accommodate the salt cell.

What does chlorine from a pool smell like?

Generally if chlorine level is maintained between 1-3ppm you should not smell chlorine. As the level rises it becomes noticable, however most complaints about chlorine smell are due to chloramines (even in a clear & clean pool), chlorine molecules which are bound by swimmer wastes and/or bacteria introduced to the pool. This problem can be confirmed by a reputable pool shop by testing your water. Fix it by oxidising your pool regularly during the swimming season and let the pool breathe by removing the cover for the following hour or so.

The difference between a elastic and inelastic demand?

Elastic demand changes according to some other factor. The demand for holdiay trees is elastic throughout the year because there is only damand during the winter season. Inelastic demand is constant. As you might have guessed, the demand for gasoline is inelastic because most families need a constant supply. Even during the so-called summer driving season, the uptick in demand is going to remain the same, unless prices cause what is called "demand destruction." This is what happened during 2009.
