Swimming Pool Salt Systems are an alternative way to sanitize your inground swimming pool. Over the last decade there has been a huge increase in the popularity of these systems. Many companies including Hayward/Goldline, Jandy, Pentair, and Saline Generating Systems (SGS) have their own models of salt systems.
Salt Systems have their pros and cons. The initial cost to install a Salt System is fairly expensive, but after the initial install cost the price of the salt is super cheap when compared to chlorine tablets. However, most people don’t consider the fact that eventually your Salt System will break down and need repairs. Salt Cells typically have a 3-5 year lifespan and eventually need to be replaced. The replacement cost of a Salt Cell can be between $500-$1,000. There are a few replacement Salt Cells, like the Hayward T-Cell-940, that come with a 4 year manufacturer warranty.
