5 Benefits of a Saltwater Pool
1. Saltwater pools are gentler on your body and clothing.
Saltwater pools are gentler than traditional chlorine pools. If you’ve ever spent time in a traditionally chlorinated pool, you’ve probably experienced the red and irritated eyes that often come along with the fun. Traditional chlorine pools also add some major wear and tear on your swimsuits. In contrast, saltwater pools are gentler on the eyes, hair, and clothing.
2. There is no harsh chlorine smell
You won’t have that chlorine smell. Because the chlorine in saltwater pools is created naturally rather in a man-made fashion, you won’t have the same harsh chlorine smell.
3. The water is softer
The water is softer. Salt can be used as a water softener in your shower inside of the house, and it has the same effect on your pool water. Salt-chlorinated pool water is silkier and leaves your skin feeling less dried out than traditionally chlorinated pool water does.
4. You don’t need to store chlorine
No more storing chlorine. Let’s face it, storing and handling chemicals is a nuisance. Especially if you have young children or pets in the home, it can be dangerous to store chlorine. In general, saltwater pools do not use chlorine in its man-made form, as the generator will convert salt into chlorine. The exception to this is if your pool’s balance gets substantially off track. Most of the time though, storing and handling chlorine are not things you will need to worry about.
5. They cost less to maintain
Lower chemical maintenance cost. Salt is much cheaper to purchase than chlorine. Depending on the size of your pool, you could save hundreds of dollars a year in chemical costs with a salt system.
