What is the usual cost to convert a chlorine pool to saltwater pool?

I got a salt water chlorinator from Canadian Tire. Missed the sale so it was around $300 last year. Put it in line after the filter and before the return. Add the water and stabilize the Ph. Then get the chlorine set up with pool shock. Wait a day for everything to stabilize while filtering. Add the required salt for the pool volume (volume calculators online), let it circulate for a day or two then turn on the chlorinator. That's it. It did the rest. Never had to add salt, or any Ph altering chemicals. Best of all... never had to mess with chlorine! I'm starting year two and it's working as advertised.
