Salt Water Pool Systems Ponte Vedra
Chlorine keeps your pool looking beautiful. One way to add chlorine to your pool is through a salt water system. It’s a little bit different than adding chlorine through the usual means. Instead of adding chlorine directly, a device called a chlorinator uses a reaction called electrolysis which breaks down salt so that chlorine can be added directly.
Sound complicated? Maybe a little but a salt system actually makes pool ownership a lot easier. It will give you more time to focus on what really matters when it comes to your pool – having fun using it!
And don’t worry! Having a salt system won’t make you all sticky when you get all like that sensation you feel after a day playing in the ocean at the beach.
You won’t have to add chlorine pucks or liquid or granular chlorine anymore. This saves you money for each one of those you would be buying. Saltwater is also easier on your skin. Saltwater systems monitor and clean themselves. And that little floated in your pool that’s so annoying? You won’t need it anymore. Saltwater systems have advantages over chlorine in many areas and for that reason they’re becoming very popular.
Saltwater pools have less chlorine content than traditional systems because you don’t have to frequently add more and more chlorine. You’ll notice that saltwater pools don’t have that harsh chlorine odor to them that you experience when swimming in traditional swimming pools. What you’re smelling is actually chloramines which are gases produced after the chlorine has been used.
Did you know that it’s safe to open your eyes in a saltwater pool? The amount of salt in a saltwater pool is about the same as found in humans tears. So it’s not as abrasive on your eyes if you decide to open them while you’re having fun under the surface. If you have sensitive skin, you might notice that traditional pools can be harsh if you use them for too long or too frequently but saltwater systems aren’t as bad. Saltwater can actually help to heal certain skin conditions such as eczema or acne!
