What Is a Saltwater Pool?
A saltwater pool is essentially a system that allows the salt to convert to chlorine, making the water softer and less harsh to swim in. Saltwater pools are a popular alternative because they offer a less harsh chemical than chlorine and are easier to maintain.
How Does a Saltwater Pool System Work?
How does the pool stay clean and bacteria free? The system is designed to convert salt into chlorine, so your pool is efficiently chlorinated even though it is receiving less chlorine than before. This new converted chlorine is less harsh than traditional chlorine, making it healthier for your skin, hair, and eyes.
Installation of Salt and Saline System for Swimming Pool
Converting a chlorinated pool water system to a saltwater system can be easily achieved—all that is required is changing the equipment to a saltwater generator. Because you will be dealing with the exterior electrical system, the help of a professional is advised. Millennium Pools and Spas offers high-quality saltwater pool system installations in Maryland and Springfield, VA. We’re experts in installing new salt system upgrades to existing pools.
Can Commercial Pools Be Converted to Salt & Saline Systems?
Yes, commercial pools can also benefit from switching to a saline system. Saline chlorination utilizes technology, making it safer, more cost effective, and more and environmentally friendly. We offer three unique salt chlorination systems:
- The MINI-reverse polarity series
- The CHLOR-reverse polarity series
- The CLASSIC- forward polarity series
The Benefits of Saltwater System
The fact that the pool will have significantly less chlorine makes this a very appealing options, but there are other perks to consider:
- Safety: Chlorine is sometimes dangerous to store and handle in tablet and liquid form. The lower chlorine levels produced from a salt generator help ensure fewer eye and skin irritations. You´ll also reduce your exposure to chlorine and harsh products.
- Soft Feel: Saltwater is naturally smooth and soft. Many people prefer this smooth feel to the abrasive feeling of chlorinated pools. The softer feeling enhances the swimming experience.
- Easy Maintenance: While we do need to skim and clean your pool regularly, a salt system makes it much easier to maintain. We don’t need to add bleach to the pool every week because a saltwater system uses a chlorinator to keep the pool safe and clear.
- No Harsh Smell: Say goodbye to the harsh chlorine smell. The small amounts of chlorine produced in saltwater pools don’t have the same effects.
