From the moment we filled the pool and started the system, our water has glistened. It is clear, it is quiet, the water is tasteless, there is no chemical residue on our skin, and for those of us who are blonde, there is no chlorine green tinge to your hair. (A very important thing for a girl). At no time does your skin feel dry. The filter does everything for you. We have it set to different times to filter automatically, and have easily adjusted the times as the seasons change. I am more than happy with our system especially in comparison to other systems we have had in other pools.
