salt water pool clean

Thinking about upgrading your swimming pool system? Switching to a salt water pool system is a great choice, and it has a lot of benefits. Most pool owners think a salt water pool is just ocean water when that is not the case. Salt water pool systems are just another way to clean your swimming pool free of bacteria. Keep reading to learn how a salt water pool system works and why you should switch to one.

How Does a Salt Water Pool System Work?

Saltwater swimming pools draw on dissolved salt in the water to generate chlorine. The salt cell or generator utilizes a process called electrolysis to break down or separate the salt also known as sodium chloride in the water.

The chemical reaction created by electrolysis produces chlorine in the form of sodium hypochlorite and hypochlorous acid. These sanitizing / disinfecting / oxidizing agents are the same as chlorine commonly used in swimming pools in solid and powdered form. This means a saltwater pool is not actually chlorine free. It simply utilizes a chlorine generator instead of being dependent on chlorine added in other forms.
