Salt water pools are becoming more and more popular at both commercial and residential properties, but not everyone knows what a salt-water pool is or how it differs from a traditional pool. Here are some tips for those looking to invest in a salt water pool:
-Salt water pools use chlorine, but it is not placed directly into the pool. Instead, chlorine is released from the salt in the pool through a process called electrolysis.
-The water in salt water pools is usually less harsh on the skin and eyes.
-Since salt water pools do not need chlorine, owners do not have to buy or keep chlorine for the pool.
-Salt water pools can use more electricity than traditional pools because of the salt water generator.
-They still require regular maintenance and upkeep.
–Salt water pools can be more conducive to algae growth.
