What are the benefits of a salt pool?

Chlorine has been the traditional chemical of choice to clean pools, but salt does the same job and has advantages over chlorine.

  • Saves money: You will use less salt than chlorine and lessen spending to replace chemicals over time.
  • Easier to use: Chlorine can be dangerous under certain conditions, while salt is a safer alternative.
  • Odor: Some find the chlorine odor unpleasant, while salt has no noticeable scent.
  • No skin irritation: Everyone has experienced coming out of a chlorine pool with red eyes and itchy skin. Salt prevents this problem.

What do I need to know before I install a saltwater system in my above-ground pool?

Installment and maintenance of a saltwater system for your pool are quick and easy, but there are some facts you should know.

  • Space: Make sure you have space set aside where your saltwater system can fit.
