When chatting with pool owners, we often get questions about salt vs chlorine pools. Read this blog to get the answers to the 4 most common questions we get & learn everything you need to know about salt and chlorine pools!
What is the difference between salt and chlorine pools?
Salt and chlorine pools differ in both the process in which the chlorine is generated and the levels in which chlorine is maintained
In salt pools, natural salt is consistently converted into chlorine via a chemical reaction (electrolysis) allowing them to maintain a lower, more stable chlorine level
Chlorine pools require bleach to be added on a weekly basis resulting in higher chlorine concentration & larger fluctuations of chlorine levels between treatments
What are the benefits to a saltwater pool?
Salt pools are healthier for you due to lower irritation levels such as red eyes or dried out skin and hair.
There is no chlorine smell
Salt pools do not stain your clothing
Do you have a salt or chlorine pool?
Examine the pool equipment to see if a salt cell is installed & ensure the salt cell is operational (power is on, salt levels are correct, no red service lights).
