You will need 1 chlorine generator for every 25000 gallons of water in your pool, They run 1500-1700.00 each. It takes about 2.5 years to break even, If nothing breaks.The water is tons better feeling on your skin and you still need to keep PH in check add Pool conditioner and keep track of your phosphates.More info Kenny 801-232-5893

You also don't have to mess with chlorine tablets, granules, etc. Many of the newer chlorine generators are self-cleaning and easy to use. A good example is the Aqua Rite from Goldline / Hayward. You can see one here:

What do you do to soothe red eyes due to saltwater swimming pool?

If you are getting eye irritation in a saltwater swimming pool it is most likely due to overproduction of chlorine. so the thing to do is test the chlorine content of the water and if it is over adjust the setting so it produces less chlorine. A salt water pool should be less irritating on the eyes because the correct salt content is approximately the same as the amount of salt found in tears. or in saline eye drops.
