A backyard swimming pool here in Central Florida is definitely must have! Saltwater has become very popular for many reasons. The water is not only less irritating to the eyes and skin, but is is more buoyant and feels softer. There is no chemical or chlorine smell. It is more enjoyable and a lot easier to build a new in-ground swimming pool or update your existing one.
It’s easy to replace the chlorine equipment for the new saltwater technology
Saltwater technology is also safer and easier maintenance than chlorine pools. By eliminating storing, dispensing, and handling harsh chemicals, while eliminating harmful by products.
Saltwater pools operate with a chlorine generator cell, separating water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen through electrolysis. It then combines them with sodium chloride or salt, to form chlorine or sodium hypochlorite. This is how the water is sterilized.
Chlorine pools contain chloramines as part of the disinfection process. This is what is responsible for the smell, lung irritation, and itchy eyes, associated with these pools. You will also have to keep adding chlorine and chemicals on a regular basis to keep the pool safe and clean.
Because saltwater pools naturally produce chlorine from salt, you won’t need to add anything. After the chlorine sanitizes the pool, it converts back into salt and the process starts all over again.
“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.”according to Salt Institute.
