Don't trust anyone who tells you a certain brand is best, or gives you best water clarity, etc... All saltwater systems do the same thing, produce pure chlorine sanitzer (Hypochlorus acid) from the small amount of salt in the water.

The difference between brands is primarily how much chlorine it is able to produce in a day: its output. Don't buy a system unluss you know how many lbs/day of chlorine it makes. Most municipalites look for at least 0.04 lbs/day PER THOUSAND GALLONS. Don't buy a system unless you know how many lbs/day of chlorine it is capable of producing, or you may find yourself lacking sanitation capabilies.

The next biggest difference is a salt system's longevity and warranty. The electrolytic cell will wear out. If you have to replace a cell every three years, like some brands, you won't save very much money. There are brands that last 5, 6, 7 years or more.

There aren't many sites out there that do product reviews or comparisons for saltwater pool systems (or salt water chlorine generators, saltwater chlorinators, electronic chlorine generators, whatever you want to call them). I have only seen two sites that have information on ALL brands, and one with product comparisons, they are:

The AquaTrol is the only chlorine generator designed specifically for the above ground pool. The pool�s water quality will be unmatched with the AquaTrol system. Now have crystal clear, silky smooth water at an affordable price. The AquaTrol chlorine generator takes common salt and converts it into chlorine without all the harsh side effects. No more red irritated eyes, dry itchy skin, or chlorine smell. The AquaTrol has a built in time clock that allows control of the filtering time and the chlorine production saving money by reducing filtering costs and never buying chlorine.
