Ionization is much better than salt system and about the chlorine you only need to put about 5 to 10% of the chlorine. With the ionization you will only have about 0.2 or 0.3 of chlorine and no more chemicals. Tha water gets very clear and shiny. No bacterias found in normal testing. Se I have no problems and the water is great!!!!

The chlorine generator electronically separates chlorine gas out of the salt water which then dissolves into the water automatically maintaining chlorine levels.

Many people install salt water systems under the impression that it is chlorine free. Salt water systems produce chlorine electronically and therefore does not require adding chlorine to the water physically. So salt water is not chlorine free water.

These systems produce 100% chlorine free water.

Do salt water pools require de?

If a salt water pool has a DE (diatomaceous earth) filter, then the filter depends on the DE for filtration. Salt water pools must be filtered just the same as fresh water pools. Not all filters use DE however. There are also sand and cartridge style filters that do not use DE. Salt is added to a pool usually to enable the use of a salt water chlorine generator which can eliminate the need to add chlorine because the chlorine is generated electrically from the salt. It does not eliminate the need for filtration and in the case of a DE filter, does not change the need for DE.
