What is a salt water pool?

Salt water pools are chlorine pools. Salt isn't better than chlorine, IT IS CHLORINE. Instead of buying chlorine in a bucket, you buy a machine that cooks/converts salt into liquid chlorine. Logically, we all know that salt eventually corrodes everything it comes in contact with. Salt will accelerate the corrosion of pool tiles, the pool surface and the pool mechanics. And you still have a chemical pool. Shame on the pool industry for selling a wolf in sheep's clothing.
