What is bettersalt water pool or ozonated swimming pool?

A salt water pool in most cases uses a salt water chlorinator. It converts sodium chloride (Salt) to sodium hypochlride (chlorine) so you still have a chlorinated pool. Ozone is far healthier and maintenance free. Ozone can replace partially or totally Chlorine in the pool. It is many times more effective in getting rid of bacteria, algae & viruses than Chlorine. It will maintain a very clean water without the use of the many chemicals used to disinfect, to adjust the PH, Alkalinity, .......... By comparison to the Chlorine , Ozone treatment is virtually maintenance free. All you need is to install Ozonator, add the Ozone fix and enjoy.
