Salt water pools are becoming more and more popular nowadays, and you may be wondering if it is right for you. Here are some factors to think about when deciding whether or not to switch to a salt system.
In saltwater pools, the process of electrolysis is used to sanitize the water. First, pool salt is poured into the water, and an electrolyzer is connected to the pool’s filtration system. The salt sanitizes the water as it passes through the electrolyzer, which transforms it into natural chlorine.
You should weigh out the positive and negative reasons for having a salt water system versus a chlorine pool before you make a decision.
A salt system is much more effortless to use. The electrolyzer automates the treatment of the water, making maintenance much more seamless. Replacing the salt is much less frequent then replacement of the chlorine pebbles.
Saltwater pools are more natural and have fewer health disadvantages than that of a chlorine pool. The salt will cause less allergic reactions and irritation to the eyes and skin, and there is no reason to keep excess chlorine stored in the house which is safer for the children. This also benefits the environment by not giving off chemical byproducts. The pools treated with salt are also much softer than chlorinated pools which is a more pleasurable environment to swim in.
Salt water systems can be more corrosive than chlorine pools. The salt naturally raises the pH levels and must be regulated manually or with a regulator. The salt levels can also prematurely damage your equipment such as the electrolzer, heaters, underwater lights, and other devices.
In addition, the initial installation of the salt system is generally more expensive than a chlorinated pool. Repairing the electrolyzer can also be more expensive than other types of equipment. Even little fixes can cost a pretty penny, so be cautious when maintaining your pool’s pH environment.
