SALTWATER POOLS

SALTWATER POOLS
How does a saltwater pool work?

The method by which a salt-chlorine generator works is that it applies a process of electrolysis to the dissolved salt in the water as it passes through a pool's filter system. This electrolysis takes away the 'sodium' part of salt and what is left is chloride, or chlorine.

Why choose a saltwater pool?

Automatic chlorine generators, more commonly referred to as saltwater pools, are a great addition to any pool. They eliminate the need to purchase sanitizing chemicals because the on-site production of the sanitizer in a saltwater pool is produced automatically.
 
  • Reduced chlorine smell
  • It’s great for the skin
  • Won't fade swim suits

Saltwater pools are becoming more popular in the US because of their easy upkeep and eco-friendly system design.

Despite these advantages, keep in mind that every homeowner’s needs and local environment is unique. You’ll need to buy chemicals less frequently than if you owned a chlorine pool, but you’ll still be purchasing balancing chemicals and salt on a regular basis.

Consider all of this information when deciding if a saltwater pool is right for you.

CHLORINE POOLS

CHLORINE POOLS
How does a chlorine pool work?

Chlorine is the chemical most often used to keep swimming pools free of bacteria that can be hazardous to our health. The main difference between chlorine and saltwater pools is that rather than producing their own chlorine through electrolysis, chlorine pools need to receive regular chlorine treatments to ensure that they stay clean and safe.

Chlorine kills bacteria through a fairly simple chemical reaction, killing microorganisms and bacteria. The key to maintaining a chlorine pool is to keep your chemical levels balanced so that everything is safe and working properly.

Why choose a chlorine pool?
 
  • Chlorinated pools can be better at clearing up bacteria in the water than salt water pools. Chlorine also cleans pool water faster than salt.
 
  • Chlorine pools are extremely easy to maintain. Pool operators simply add chlorine tablets when needed. And, this process can be automated.
 
  • Low maintenance and overall cost

Despite these advantages, keep in mind that every homeowner’s needs and local environment are unique.
