Saltwater Pool vs. Chlorine Pool: Which is Best for You?

008

 

If you're on the market for a new swimming pool, then you've likely at least considered a chlorinated pool over a saltwater pool, or vice versa.  Both come with their own set of advantages that make them more suitable to a household's lifestyle, so let's dig right in and look at what features may make one better for your family over the other:

The Advantages of a Saltwater Pool

Rather than use chlorine tablets, dissolved salt is used to both clean and sanitize your pool.  Not only is this way of cleaning the pool more budget-friendly, but saltwater pools also often require less maintenance than a chlorinated pool.

What many people don't understand, however, is that saltwater pools don't leave you with the “feel” of just emerging from the ocean.  In fact, saltwater pools still have chlorine in it since chlorine is a byproduct of salt!  But the major benefit of saltwater is that you're able to reap the benefits of a chlorinated pool without using as many chemicals.  Because of this, these pools are thought to be safer for the skin, hair, and less damaging to our bathing suits than chlorine.

The Advantages of a Chlorinated Pool

Many will attest to the fact that chlorine is better at cleaning up any bacteria in the water than a saltwater-based pool.  It's also faster to act if there are bacteria present, or if the pH levels happen to be off. Clearing up the water is also significantly faster, taking only a day or two versus 3 to 5 days.

Here's another advantage that makes chlorinated pools a winner in many households: they're easier to operate.  All you need to do is add some tablets to your pool system and your pump or a floating disbursement device will spread it through the water for you – it doesn't get easier than that!
