 Anyone hear of them? My neighbor has one and it has totally piqued my interest.

Yep. The pool I swim in just about everyday is one! I love it. The salt turns into a natural form of chlorine that does not bother my skinner as bad.

We've been contemplating coverting ours but it's not cheap and I hear a lot of mixed reviews. Not sure what we'll do.

Have you tried more than one? Does the ocean bother you too?

 I was googling them last night and I found that there is a system/company that is called eco-smarter pools.  I'm sure it's not cheap, but I'm wondering how it is in the long run. I mean with chlorine pools you have to do weekly if not daily ph tests (especially after rain) and then the yearly cost of those chemicals combined.  If I had a inground pool, I'd consider it. But right now I have a kiddie pool that comes up to my waist when I'm sitting in it, dreaming of a bigger pool with a sprayer, while my son dumps water on my head. lol.
