Saltwater pools are “chlorine-free”
Saltwater pools aren’t very different from traditional pools using chlorine tabs or sticks. In fact, the main difference is the way you are adding chlorine. Manually, versus electronically through a process called electrolysis.
A saltwater pool is easier to own
Saltwater pools require the same maintenance and upkeep as traditional chlorine pools. You will still need to balance and adjust your pH, Total Alkalinity, and Chlorine levels.
Saltwater pools feel better on the skin, hair, and eyes
It’s important to note that a saltwater pool is still a chlorinated pool. Any difference to the feel of the water is because of the added salt. Salt, however, can have negative effects such as accelerated corrosion of equipment and cement, stone and stainless steel surfaces in and around the pool. There are other ways of achieving silky smooth water, like using BioGuards SilkGuard Complete Tablets or Sticks.
