    Salt Water Systems Are Taking Over 

    Salt water systems have become an increasingly popular option for pool owners recently and with good reason. Although the smell and feel of chlorine has been ubiquitous sign of summer, most pool owners who have used chlorinated water for their pools have done so purely because it was the only option available. But now that chlorine alternatives are more accessible, salt systems for pools has become the front runner to replace chlorinated pools.

    A great advantage to salt systems for pools is that they’re actually better for your eyes and skin. A lot of people are thrown off when they first hear about salt water systems, thinking that their pool will end up feeling more like the ocean than a pool. But salt water pools aren’t anywhere near as salty as the ocean. They only have about one tenth of the salinity. You won’t have to worry about irritating your eyes or drying out your skin and hair. Salt systems are also perfect for people who are sensitive to chlorine and might even be safer in the long run than exposure to such large amounts of chlorine. 

    Some worry that salt water pools will be more complicated or too different from the typical chlorine pool but they are actually a lot easier to maintain than chlorine pools. Salt water systems like Autopilot make it incredibly easy to maintain your pool. With a salt system in place, your pool will emit natural chlorine into the water as needed.

    It probably seems obvious by now why so many pool users are raving about salt water systems. It can be hard to break with tradition but chlorine pools are on their way out. Salt water truly is a great alternative from the money it will save you to the gentleness of the water to the easy maintenance. There’s really no reason not to switch to salt water.

    You enjoy fresh clean water in your swimming pool.

    For the health, safety and comfort of you, your children and guests you want the most sparkling water in your swimming pool.

    Chlorine is the best way to sanitize water, be it drinking water or swimming water. There are many common ways to sanitize your pool with chlorine; chlorine tablets, liquid chlorine, granular chlorine and chlorine gas. The easiest and safest way is to generate your own chlorine at a constant low level is with a salt chlorine generator.

    Salt is a natural element found in the earth, in our body and in our homes. It is used to season and preserve our food, rinse out contact lenses and soften our drinking water.

    Salt is a very economical commodity.

    When the ions in salt are passed over specially coated blades and induced with a low voltage electrical charge it is converted into chlorine. It is the same process that is used to convert seawater into laundry bleach.

    When this process is incorporated into your swimming pool you have your very own "chlorine generator". These systems allow for a consistently low dose of chlorine to be introduced into the pool water. This eliminates the highs and lows of liquid chlorine and chlorine tablets.
