If you already have a pool or are thinking of purchasing a pool you may ask yourself if you should go for a salt water pool or a chlorine pool. Which one is better? Should you get a salt water generator for your swimming pool? First of all, you must know that the salt water pool is a chlorine pool.

Many people do not know how to make the change to a salt water pool. There are some pros and cons for turning your pool into a salt water pool. First you need to decide what type of pool you want in your home. You can select from a fiberglass pool, concrete, or a pool with a vinyl liner.
