Salt Water Pools
May 7th, 2015 6:13 AM
About a year ago I installed a salt water chlorination system for my residential pool.  What a reduction in time for maintenance.  The system cost about $1.200 which included installation.  No longer do I have to run to the pool supply store to purchase chlorine and then have it taking up space in an already crowded garage.  The system produces the same chloride ion from normal table salt by electrolysis as is found in liquid chlorine.  Now, it is still necessary to have tests done at the pool supply store for salt concentration, chlorine level, acidity, alkalinity and stabilizer.  Some of those chemicals impact upon the longevity of the pool surface finish. The electrolysis process recycles the salt.   However, the salt concentration can be reduced by rainfall and the removal of excess water in the pool.   Overall, I would rank the salt water system as great time saver in pool maintenance and a long term money saver because you no longer have to buy chlorine.  So, if you are thinking about converting to a salt water system, I would highly recommend it.
