How to clean your pool with less chlorine

How does a salt water chlorination system work?

  1. It converts natural salt — think table salt — through a generator that creates a pure, efficient, non-liquid form of chlorine. This sanitizer integrates with the pool’s plumbing and filtering system and cleans the water as it filters through.
  2. You won’t feel like you’re swimming in the sea or ocean. Unlike a saltwater swimming pool, a saltwater swimming pool sanitization system utilizes salt in the generator to clean the water. The salt in seawater is about 40,000 parts per million, the salt in your pool after using a saltwater generator is about 4,000 ppm.
  3. There’s no need to buy or store any toxic chlorine at your home.
  4. You won’t have to deal with the red eyes, dry skin and potential damage to the pool equipment that could arise when you use liquid or tablet chlorine to sanitize the water.
  5. The pool should remain consistently gentle to swim in and that’s great for those families who have young children in the water.
  6. Saltwater generator cleaned pool water won’t fade your bathing suits or any furniture you sit on with a wet bathing suit.

You will pay more, up front, for a saltwater generator to keep your pool water clean, but you will reap the benefits in the long run and will even save money on pool chemicals. If you have questions about these systems, give us a call today!
