The Process for Installing a Salt Water System for Your Pool
If you are interested in salt water for your pool, there are more than a few factors to consider. Our team will help ensure that the components of a salt water elements are installed properly, regardless of the size of your pool.
Why Switch to Saltwater?
There are several negatives of chlorine pools, including the smell of chlorine, which can cause eye and skin irritation. With salt chlorination, there is less chemical use and you can make your pool water soft and sanitized. While you will still need to check the chemicals that are in your pool, you will not have to make adjustments as often because you will see fewer valleys and peaks in pH and chemical levels. When there are fewer spikes in the chlorine levels, irritation of the skin and eyes is much less common, and the pool water will be much gentler on the clothing and the hair. Also, water in your saltwater system is going to feel “softer,” and many claim it feels as though it is “luxurious” when they are swimming in it.
The Design and Makeup of a Saltwater Pool
A huge misconception related to saltwater pools is that they aren’t using chlorine to help keep the water clean. This isn’t the case because chlorine is still being used as the sanitizing agent. The main difference is that when a saltwater pool is in place, the salt will work with the salt cell to create the chlorine as needed. This means that you don’t have to worry about handling chlorine tablets or chlorine, but your pool will have much lower levels of chlorine than a typical system.
Because the chlorine is being regulated through the salt cell and it is connected with an automation system, your pool isn’t going experience the ongoing seesaw of drops and spikes that are seen with more common chlorine pools.
