Saltwater spa vs. Chlorine spa?

11 years ago

Hello, I am currently in the process of construction on a owner/builder spa and I was wondering if anyone could help me out with an important decision to make. We are trying to decide whether to go with saltwater system or traditional chlorine. We have done a lot of research on this and it seems very difficult to determine which one would suit us more appropriately. My wife's big concern is that she has read that the saltwater can be an issue with paver decking longevity? Also, she is wondering whether the saltwater would be harmful to some of the surrounding plants in the area. I am leaning towards a salt system and she is leaning towards chlorine. Any help from owners of both would be appreciated greatly!
