The Benefits of Saltwater Pools
If you have a pool or ever thought about getting one you may have heard more and more people talk about saltwater pools.
Wait. Saltwater isn’t just for the ocean? No!
You can have a saltwater swimming pool right in your back yard. But, saltwater pools are not totally chlorine-free. Here’s how it works:
A saltwater pool uses a solution that your pool filters. There is a process that takes the saltwater through a salt cell where it gets a small electrical jolt. This creates the pool’s own chlorine which helps to keep it clean. The difference is that the chlorine produced by a saltwater pool is of a higher quality than the chlorine found in a regular pool.
These are some other reasons why people like saltwater pools:
- Eliminates chlorine smell and irritation. One of the many reasons people decide to get a saltwater pool from the start or end up making the switch from chlorine to saltwater is because there is less irritation. Exposure to chlorine in pools leads to skin and eye irritation for some people. When you swim in a saltwater pool you’ll be able to open your eyes underwater without them getting itchy and red.
- No need to spend money on chlorine or shock. While a saltwater pool may cost you more up front you can actually save money in the long run. You’ll save money on chlorine tablets and other chemicals because the salt cells are working to keep your pool clean.
- No more fading. People who switch from chlorine to saltwater pools often comment on how their swimsuits are no longer fading. Those with blonde hair also don’t notice any side effects like hair looking green after swimming in a chlorine-filled pool.
If you decide to look into getting a saltwater pool you can’t forget about maintenance and care. There are still plenty of pool care necessities as well as important safety issues. One of those safety issues comes in preventing accidents near the pool. Installing a pool fence is one way to make sure everyone stays safe.
