Salt water pool system was introduced in the New Zealand market during the 70s and became popularly known in the United States in the 80s. Even though the salt water pool started slow, it has become popular to many pool builders after stabilizing its growth.
Today, most pool service companies offer a salt water pool system, including Aloha Desert Pools who service pools in Gilbert, Mesa, Chandler, and Queen Creek, Arizona. To learn more about salt water, here are the benefits that you can get if you opt to use this system.
Better For Your Health
The number one benefit of a salt water pool and the top reason why most people switch to this system is their health. Salt water pools are best for individuals with asthma or allergies triggered by the chemicals in the traditional pools.
As you can notice, traditional pools have a strong chlorine smell, especially indoor pools. This is due to the chloramine used to treat the swimming pool water. Chloramine is a mix of chlorine and ammonia, which is added to the pool water. Imagine how dangerous it could be knowing that you or your kids are swimming on that water with all the chemicals.
In an outdoor setup, the chlorine in the pool will evaporate easily, compared to the indoor pool. This is why salt water pools are best used for indoor pools. If you have an indoor pool area, you should switch to a salt water pool to ensure the safety of your family.
Gentler on eyes, skins and clothes
Because the salt water pool system does not use harsh chemicals to treat the water, you will not encounter eyes and skin irritation during or after your swim. Instead, the salt water pool system turns salt into chlorine which acts as a natural disinfectant that cleans the pool. It has a salt-chlorine generator which is its filtering system.
Chlorinated pools, on the other hand, use tablets or granulated chlorine to add to the pool regularly to disinfect and clean the pool water. The chlorine is directly added into the pool water, so you can still smell the chlorine for an extended period.
Salt Water Is Softer
Experience the best out of your swimming pool with the soft water of salt water pools. Salt can be used to make the water on your bathroom shower softer, which is why the salt water pool has naturally soft water that is refreshing and smooth on your skin.
Enjoy swimming in your pool even more with this benefit of the salt water pool system. You will notice that the water on your pool is silkier as it glides on your skin. It will also make your skin less dry after swimming.
You feel like you are swimming in a five-star hotel or resort pool if you convert your traditional pool into a salt water pool system. It feels like a luxury on your skin every time you go for a swim.
