You may have seen recent press releases about the IPSSA-funded study by the "National Pool Industry Research Center" at Cal-Poly San Luis Obisbo. The study was to determine whether or not salt generator pools can be serviced with once-a-week service visits.
According to the Pool and Spa News report, the conclusion of the study is "'With a once-a-week service visit, we found that the water chemistry of a salt-chlorinated pool will not stay within the parameters that IPSSA considers acceptable,' said Lance Sada, IPSSA’s liaison to the NPIRC."
More details are available at IPSSA's website.
Is this your experience? How do you feel about this conclusion?
