Inground vs above ground pools
When it comes to pool site construction, there are three major types; inground, semi-inground and above ground. The inground and above ground pools are without a doubt the most popular.
As the name suggests, inground pools are constructed with the entire structure underground and with the surface of the water on the same level as the ground. In simple terms, it is made by digging a hole in the ground, prepping it and filling it with water. Above ground pools on the other hand are constructed above ground level. Unlike inground pools that involve digging of holes, above ground pools are made by putting up perimeter walls to create a sort of gigantic container that is then filled with water. More often than not, the floor of the pool is at the same level with the ground surface.
Difference in terms of saltwater chlorine generators
In addition to the differences in construction style, inground and above ground pools use different chlorination systems. Both of them require the system to keep the entire pool clean. However, there is a huge difference in terms of appropriate sizes of saltwater chlorine generators for each. This is because above ground pools have a significantly lower water capacity than their inground counterparts. This means that using full-size and full-power chlorination systems could weaken or even damage the walls of the above ground pool.
