The Rising Popularity of Saltwater Pools

 In Uncategorized

Swimming is one of the most popular pastimes in the United States. And no wonder! As a wholesome outdoor activity with the added benefits of a relaxing, full-body workout, it’s no surprise that swimming reigns supreme, particularly during the summer months. Increasingly, the rising popularity of saltwater pools have been a big topic in the last few years.

The Rising Popularity of Saltwater Pools

As an alternative to pools treated with chlorine and traditional chemicals, saltwater pools have been rising in popularity.

The market for saltwater pools has been growing rapidly. It is estimated that over 50% of all new pools are now installed with saltwater pool technology. In addition to the new installations, there are a large number of existing pools being converted to saltwater pools. (FishHawk Ranch)

We’re not surprised by these statistics.

Anyone who grew up swimming in chlorine-treated pools knows that they can have negative effects on the body:

  • Irritation to the eyes
  • Drying of the skin
  • Potential damage to exposed clothing

Saltwater pools, on the other hand, provide a gentle yet effective alternative for safe and fun swimming.

Why Saltwater Works

Saltwater works because it is a natural, ecologically sound method for keeping pools clean. Salt is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial, which is why it’s been used for centuries to treat cuts, scrapes, and wounds.

Best of all, because saltwater pools contain roughly the same saline content as your teardrops do, swimming in a saltwater pool will not irritate your eyes. At the same time, salt effectively protects your pool against bacteria, algae, and other harmful organisms.

Saltwater pools are natural, clean, and often provide a smoother and silkier swimming experience than traditionally chlorine-treated pools do.
