The construction of an in-ground swimming pool in Central Florida is a big investment. And not one you should take lightly. The perfect pool encompasses more than most people think.
Salt Water vs Chlorine
Recent studies show over 75% of new swimming pools use saltwater technology. Though the initial cost of a salt chlorine generator system may be higher than a chlorine system, the reduced maintenance, less chemicals and chlorine pucks, over time the saltwater pool will pay for itself.
“How do salt water pools work? The short answer is they use a generator and special pool salt to convert the salt into mild chlorine that keeps the pool free of harmful bacteria. Both salt water pools and traditional chlorine pools use chlorine to sanitize the water. The difference is that salt water pools use a generator to turn salt into chlorine, releasing it slowly. The chlorine then sanitizes the pool and converts back to salt. The process continues, over and over again, conserving the salt and keeping sanitizer levels balanced,” according to Salt Institute.
The Salt Institute goes on to explain the benefits of salt water technology, ”Simplified, more convenient maintenance. Salt water pool owners don’t have to buy, transport, store and handle hazardous chlorine chemicals. This saves time and money. Water that’s gentle on skin, eyes, nose and hair. Salt water pools have approximately one-tenth the salinity of ocean water and about one-third the salinity of human tears, with no unpleasant chlorine smell. A more environmentally friendly approach.”
