What is the difference between saltwater and chlorine pools?

SALTWATER SYSTEMSFewer harsh chemicalsSaltwater is corrosive to metal; it can corrode outdoor furniture and natural stone.  Pavers near pool will need to be sealed to avoid breaking down.
Lower MaintenanceHigher upfront costs than chlorine systems.  The cost and installation of a chlorine generator can cost from $500 to over $2000 and will need to be replaced in approximately 7-years
Cheaper to Maintain – pool grade salt costs are lower than chlorine productsHigher energy costs – the filter must run 24/7 to generate enough chlorine to maintain clean water. 
Chlorine generator cannot generate chlorine in water temperatures below 60 degrees
CHLORINE SYSTEMSLower upfront costs – Less expensive equipment.  Water testing and balancing can be done by the homeowner.Irritating Chemicals – Chlorine can irritate your skin, eyes and throat and can dry out your skin.
Easier to perform your own maintenance on equipmentOn-going cost to maintain balance in your pool’s water chemistry
Not corrosive and will not cause major damage to pool partsWeekly checking of the water’s chemical balance is required and if needed, adding chlorine or other chemicals.
Chlorine products are more costly than pool grade salt
