== == SALT WATER POOLS ARE CHLORINATED POOLS. The difference is that the chlorine is added or manufactured automatically -- you do not have to physically add chlorine by hand daily or weekly. You also get a more even distribution of that chemical being added. However, you do have to monitor and maintain your equipment and test the chemicals periodically -- at minimum - weekly because of other chemical factors in water balance. k

== == Salt water pools are also chlorinated pools. The chlorinator converts the salt into chlorine and keeps the levels at a constant. The benefit is that you don't have to keep adding chemicals like a traditional pool. We installed a salt pool four months ago and love it. Once you get the levels of salt right it is virtually maintenance free.

Salt water pools are chlorinated pools the difference is that the salt in a salt water pool is run through a salt water chlorinator Which then makes the chlorine as the filtration equipment runs. The salt water pool is only very slightly salty and gives the water a better feeling to swim in. With a fresh water chlorinated pool you have to add chlorine to keep the chlorine levels up.

Pools used in Olympic competitions are filled with chlorinated fresh water.

Generally it's chlorinated.....

There is two types of pools: Chlorinated pools and salt water pools. If you have a salt water pool then yes, you would add salt to the pool.

Yes salt water pools are chlorinated pool any way.

They are actually both chlorinated. The "salt water pool" simply means there is a salt chlorine generator that makes chlorine from the salt. The water usually has a softer feel it as well.

Mosquitoes will hatch in swimming pools if the water is stagnant, However if the water is regularly run through filtration and chlorinated this should not be a problem.

Yes, saltwater pools can cause itching, although many find saltwater pools to be easier on skin than chlorinated ones.

Salt water pools are in fact chlorine pools part of the salt is turned into chlorine by the salt water chlorinater If it works in a normally chlorinated pool it should also work in a salt water pool. However you should check if there is any metallic ingredient like copper in it as these are not recommended in salt water pools.

Oh yes, viruses and other agents of disease are impeded by salt water just as much as they are by chlorinated fresh water. HIV does not spread through salt water.

Oh yes, you can survive on pool water for years. Either chlorinated or salt (salt water pools have very little salty taste).

No fish can live in Chlorinated water

Swimming pools are chlorinated (have Cl2 added to it) and filtered to decrease bacteria and dirt content.

Any water which has had chlorine added to it. Swimming pools don't go out and buy chlorinated water from someone who has a lake full of the stuff, or anything like that. They use tap water, and add some chlorine. +++ Mains supply water is filtered then chlorinated at the treatment works, but to only about 2ppm. Swimming-pools work at 2 - 4ppm so more chlorine-donor is added to the pool.

there is none The benefits are claimed by the Ionization of water. For more info Follow the link below

You end up with chlorinated water This is what ha pens with saltwater chlorinaters in saltwater pools. No, You end up with Chlorinated Water if you add Chlorine to water, but Chlorine Gas and Water react to make HOCl and HCl, both toxic. Cl2 + H2O à HCl + HOCl

If the water is properly chlorinated, there is no risk in drinking it.

yes chlorinated water will kill plants

Yes, properly chlorinated water is safe to drink.

For one reason, saltwater pools use a special salt to keep your pool clean without the irritating burn of chlorinated pool water that you accidentally get in your eyes sometimes. Another reason is that the water does not give off a horrid strong smell like chlorine. Salt water pools are chlorine pool the difference is that the salt in the pool is electronically treated to release chlorine. Traditionally sodium chloride Common salt is used in salt water pools. However a less environmentally harmful alternative is now becoming available in magnesium chloride/sodium chloride which feels even better to skinn in and is good for the surrounding plants. You don't have to wear goggle's because it is chlorene free!

Drinking water is chlorinated to avert the risk of harmful micro organisms causing ilness in the public through drinking water. It is also used to keep swimming pools safe.

At the proper temperatures, yes, it can. It is very unlikely seeing as sperm dies when it comes in contact with chlorinated water, but it actually has happened before.

There are three basic tests for outdoor swimming pools:chlorine (ppm - parts per million)pH (in pH units, from 0 - 14, 7.0 - 8.0 is normal for a pool)stabilizer (ppm, from 20 - 100)This applies to all chlorinated pools, INCLUDING 'salt water' pools, which are also chlorinated by the salt water chlorine generator.It can be helpful to test for total alkalinity (60 - 180 ppm, depending) though this is rarely necessary on small vinyl pools.On concrete pools of all types, and pools with heaters, it's important to test for calcium (ppm, 80 - 300 ppm, depending) since LOW calcium can damage concrete pools, and high calcium can cause cloudiness in pools and scale in heaters or pools.On pools filled with water from wells, or from old iron distribution systems, it's helpful to test for metals, such as iron or manganese. Likewise, pools using copper ionizers need to test for copper.
