Our kids have sensitive skin (eczema and such), so we switched to Baquacil. We love it. It's easy to use and test. No alergies from it. fyi...If you switch from a chlorine pool to baquacil, you have to replace the sand in your pump..or it will gum up.

Are non-chlorine pools a scam?

When debating on whether or not you should go with a chlorine or non-chlorine pool, it is important to consider the facts outside of salesman's unfulfilling promises. A non-chlorine system costs nearly $3,000 (depending on what you go with), and it is more than double the price for non-chlorine chemicals that non-chlorine advertisers promise you would not have to pay for. If you already hate cleaning dead bugs or animals out of the skimmers, don't forget that in a non-chlorine pool, all those animals and bugs are alive. The walls and steps in the pool are prone to stain because most non-chlorine systems include copper as a substitute for chlorine. Algae blooms are always extremely difficult to handle and get rid of because copper slowly kills algae. SLOWLY. I cannot stress that enough. Copper does NOT kill viruses either. On the other hand, all the bad things you may have heard about chlorine are exaggerated to make everything sound so much WORSE than it really is, so that you can be tricked into putting money in the ground (and in the hands of your sellers) with a non-chlorine pool. Does chlorine have some bad effects? Yes, but those cases are rare. (Otherwise the majority of the world would not be using chlorine pools) Chlorine was designed to kill viruses, bacteria, and algae to keep your pool a safe environment. The few side effects are irritated eyes (have you ever heard of goggles?), irritated skin (that's the sunblock you're using--use a natural alternative like coconut oil), and dry hair (what shampoo do you use? Yeah). It's your decision on whether or not you choose a non-chlorine or chlorine pool, so I suggest you choose wisely because it may be a risk to choose a non-chlorine pool.

Does a saltwater pool require the PH to be adjusted more than a non salt pool?

A salt water pool is still a chlorine pool, but a weaker form of chlorine if you will! Your PH is affected by the reaction of the "chlorine" with the contamination in the pool. Your salt generated chlorine is working harder to kill the bacteria that it can kill. Therefore there is more "demand" in your pool which will require a more consitant Ph adjustment to keep the chlorine active! The "kill rate" or time it takes to kill, of salt generated chlorine is nearly double that of chlorine. E-coli for instance can live in a chlorine pool for up to 96 hours. A salt pool, as much as 180 hours. YUCK! You should be aware that many common pool bacteria have grown immune to chlorine and salt generated chlorine! Chlorine or salt does not kill Cryptosporidium or Girardia! Science has moved well beyond chemical additon to swimming pools. Check the World Health Organizations- Healthy Pool Guidelines! Ultraviolet is the way to go! Jon La
