Why You Should Choose Salt Water Chlorination For Your Pool
Salt water chlorination is becoming very popular in Canada, especially with new pool builds.
The advantages of this system are many with the greatest being considerably lower long term pool maintenance costs and a much nicer swim than typical chlorine pools which tend to be harsh on eyes and skin. The salt content is very low (around 4000 ppm compared to the ocean which is around 36,000 ppm) and due to the addition of Epsom salts during the conversion process there is a noticeable difference in the swim quality.
We have been told by clients that once you swim in a salt water pool you would never go back to chlorine. They compared it to once having lived in a heated house in the winter you would never go back to an unheated one. We agree.
