I have an above ground pool. I want to buld a saltwater chlorine generator. Does anyone have plans for such a device?? Answered

I want to build a salt water chlorine generator for a 16 x 24 above ground pool. I am reasonably mechanical inclined and would appreciate any input from someone who has designed and successfully used such a generator. I currently have a sand filter system cleaning my pool and use large amounts of chemicals. I am a recycler and a green person who does not like to pollute or swim in chemicals. This salt water system sounds like a good idea. lets collaborate.

There is a product called SolarChlor it is a salt water generator that works off the power of the sun. It will treat up to 15,000 gallons and i have cut the run time of my pump by up to 50%. I have had one for 1yr now i think it is great! you can order one off of SolarChlor.com or just visit the website to get more familiar with it. Hope this helps Tim

Two guys I know invented a device that prohibits biological growth in water by passing a frequency through the water. It would be sterile but completely safe to drink, swim in, etc. It has since evolved into an agricultural product, but you never know.http://www.aquatron.com/

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy one? Intex makes really affordable ones for about $180 (maybe even used on Ebay). It might be cool to try to pimp it out but i'm sure for the basic mechanism it might be good to start with a cheap model of the Intex variety.
