If you will click onthe Home > Hot Tubs and Pools link right under your question, then scan through for salt water and ozone pool questions, you will find a couple of responses regarding alternatives to Chlorine.

Basically, salt pools reduce some of the algae issues, slightly but not effectively reduce the bacterial issues that chlorine cures, but introduce corrosion issues, especially in gunite or concrete or aluminum pools, and existing pools whose plumbing is not all plastic or stainless to resist corrosion.

Google the subject - you will find more comments about people going away from salt to chlorinated than the other way, and the predominate use of these pools appears to be where they have easy access to salt water to exchange it rather than clean it.
