A salt generator produces chlorine. Salt is NaCl (sodium chloride) and when it goes through the salt cell it seperates the sodium chloride thus making chlorine. So, all of the above mentioned choices chlorine tabs, salt generator, and chlorine ozone system all use chlorine as the primary sanitizer, just in different dosages. With the salt system, it is run on a lower chlorine level thus reducing some of the effects of chlorine. It can be a great way to sanatize the water, however, if you have or are installing any soft stone around the pool, beware of the salt system, it discentigrates the stone with water splash out. Also, the salt cell's do no last as long as they are suppossed to. I have seen them replaced in as little as 1 year. This can be very costly. I see it alot, being in the business, most people who put salt systems on their pool end up just using regular 3" tabs when the salt cell burns out. Lastly, when you put an ozone system on your pool, you still have to use chlorine as the primary sanitizer, just in lower doses as stated in the last answer below.
From what I understand from my pool wholesale shop, The salt generator is the . The ozone purifiers don't work as good, and chlorine, While the mainstay for most pools, works very well keeping the water clean and clear, but has the Chlorine issues. ( Harsh chemical, corrosive, dangerous to handle, bleached swimsuits, green hair, burning eyes) I am installing a Salt Generator in my pool in the next couple of days, I like the automatic features, and the low cost of continuing service, and the self cleaning of the I am getting. Hope this helps.
None of the above are "best"! Salt systems like chlorine generate harmful disinfection by products (DBP). Look into Ultraviolet technology.
I agree with Jon, the Ozone is not a stand alone system, it just provides the oxidation of the water. You still need to maintain a Chlorine residual of 0.5 to 1ppm. You can use the two systems together for the best effect and the Ozone system will actually double the life of the salt cell.
To answer this question, you must first understand how salt water pools work. The salt in the water is NaCl or Sodium-Chloride. Every salt water pool has a "Chlorine Generator". The Chlorine generator.. you guessed it... generates chlorine and leaves sodium as the bi-product. If someone has a sensitivity to Chlorine even this option wouldn't be best.If I were to have a suggestion it would be to try ozone as a sanitizer. An ozone system only uses oxygen. Oxygen and Water are the bi-product of this process.Another suggestion would be to have a bromine system. This system also is Chlorine free however uses Bromine, a more volatile chemical.
Salt water pools are chlorine pools The salt water goes through a chlorine generator where the chlorine is made using the salt in the water. Both chlorine and ozone are powerful oxidants. To the best of my knowledge Ozone is less irritating to the eyes of the swimmer but is harder on the fitting and equipment in the water. A properly balanced salt water pool is more pleasant to swim in then a fresh water pool. and if you use the new salt water system magnablu, That uses Magnesium and Potassium chloride instead of the standard sodium chloride it is actually good for you.
