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:

Are saltwater pools safer than ozone pools?

Salt water pools are chlorine pools The salt water goes through a chlorine generator where the chlorine is made using the salt in the water. Both chlorine and ozone are powerful oxidants. To the best of my knowledge Ozone is less irritating to the eyes of the swimmer but is harder on the fitting and equipment in the water. A properly balanced salt water pool is more pleasant to swim in then a fresh water pool. and if you use the new salt water system magnablu, That uses Magnesium and Potassium chloride instead of the standard sodium chloride it is actually good for you.

Magnablu This is in my opinion the best salt water chlorinator available I have seen one operating for over a year now and have never seen the pool as clean and trouble free. The system is based on magnesium and potassium chloride instead of the sodium chloride that is normally used in swimming pools. sodium chloride Magnesium and potassium chloride are actually good for you physically and the backwash water is good for the garden. Swimmers that use the pol report that the water feels better and leaves them feeling better then the old system did.

Do saltwater swimming pools produce the same asthma symptoms as chlorine pools do?

To answer this question, you must first understand how salt water pools work. The salt in the water is NaCl or Sodium-Chloride. Every salt water pool has a "Chlorine Generator". The Chlorine generator.. you guessed it... generates chlorine and leaves sodium as the bi-product. If someone has a sensitivity to Chlorine even this option wouldn't be best.If I were to have a suggestion it would be to try ozone as a sanitizer. An ozone system only uses oxygen. Oxygen and Water are the bi-product of this process.Another suggestion would be to have a bromine system. This system also is Chlorine free however uses Bromine, a more volatile chemical.
