Saltwater Pool Frequently Asked Questions
Will swimming in a saltwater pool irritate my skin and eyes less?
Yes, swimming in a saltwater pool can be gentler on the skin and eyes compared to traditional pools. The lower chlorine levels in saltwater pools reduce the likelihood of skin and eye irritation commonly associated with heavily chlorinated pools.
Do saltwater pools have a strong chlorine smell?
Saltwater pools produce fewer chloramines, which are responsible for the strong chlorine smell in traditional pools. As a result, saltwater pools tend to have a milder and less noticeable chlorine odor.
Are saltwater pools more environmentally friendly?
Saltwater pools are often considered more environmentally friendly due to the reduced reliance on chlorine chemicals. While they do require electricity to operate the chlorine generation system, the overall environmental impact can be lower than that of traditional pools.
Can I convert my existing traditional pool into a saltwater pool?
Yes, it is possible to convert an existing traditional pool into a saltwater pool. The process typically involves installing a chlorine generation system and making any necessary adjustments to the pool’s infrastructure. It is recommended to consult with a pool professional for proper conversion and guidance.
