Health Benefits of Saltwater Pools
Saltwater pools will not bring the ocean to your backyard, but they might provide a better pool experience than traditional chlorinated pool options. Saltwater pools reduce irritation associated with chlorine and still effectively eliminate pathogens. Here are some of the benefits of choosing a saltwater system for your pool.
Low Chlorine Levels – You don’t physically add chlorine to a saltwater pool. The salt itself converts to chlorine through electrolysis. Salt dissolved in the pool becomes hypochlorous acid, which acts as a disinfectant.
Less Chlorine is Safer – Chlorine can be dangerous. It is poisonous, flammable, and corrosive. If it’s not properly stored, it can be a fire hazard.
If you touch chlorine tablets, you might have serious chemical burns. When you swim in water saturated with chlorine, it can be absorbed through the skin. Chlorine can irritate asthma, allergies, and other breathing problems. Some studies have suggested a link between chlorine exposure and some types of cancer.
Gentle on Hair and Skin – Chlorine dries out your skin. It makes your hair brittle and discolored. Because there’s less chlorine in saltwater pools, the water in them is much gentler. People with sensitive skin can swim in saltwater pools, where traditional chlorine pools might be too irritating. The water even feels better. People say adding salt makes pool water feel soft, and skin feels smoother after swimming.
Gentle on Eyes – Saltwater pools have much less salt than the ocean. When you open your eyes under water or get splashed in the face, it doesn’t sting. The salt concentration is very similar to that of human tears. Most people have experienced the fumes associated with an indoor hotel pool. The chlorine makes your eyes water and your lungs burn. Saltwater pools have no chemical fumes to irritate your eyes or respiratory system.
Low Maintenance – Saltwater pools are almost self-maintaining. Chlorine pools need to be regularly monitored and adjusted. Advanced saltwater systems monitor themselves and automatically adjust as needed.
