A salt water pool is a chlorine pool, part of the salt is converted into chlorine electronically. I have found that regardless of the disinfection system used in a pool that the use of chlorine is the easiest and most reliable. The beauty with salt is the water fees better and you don't have to store and handle chlorine which is corrosive at best and explosive at worst. These day you can even go shopping for the type of salt you wish to use to benefit your health and the gardens around the pool.

Chlorine is a better system because it kills algie and the salt water atracts it.

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.

yes algae levels are lower due to the salt levels. Salt water pools are more carrosive to the pools plumbing. PVC may be a better way to plumb a pool as time will tell.

ecosmarte is a non chemical and non salt water water purification for swimming pools

No, you only need to put in the salt and fit the salt water chlorinator. Salt water pools are chlorine pools they make it electronically by converting the chloride into chlorine in the pool

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.

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.

The water gets saltier. Salt is added to salt water pools so that a chlorine generator can convert it into chlorine It wont do any harm as amater of act it will make the water feel better.

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!

Ive never heard of them being used before in salt water pools.

Salt water pools are chlorine pools, the difference is that a fresh water pool has chlorineadded by the operator, while a salt water pool has a chlorine generator that electronically creates chlorine while the filtration system is running I does this by separating chlorine gas out of the salt in the water and dissolving it back into the water. most salt water chlorinator pools use common salt or sodium chloride, which is the same as the salt found in sea water, only at a much lower concentration. A new system is available now that that uses magnesium chloride and sodium chloride, the advantage with this is that it is not harmful to use the backwash for watering the garden and it has a therapeutic effect on swimmers.

There is a common misconception that salt water swimming pools are chlorine free. Salt used in pools is "sodium chloride" When the salt water goes thru the generator the chlorine is released.

clorine and depending on certain pools salt water.

yes because salt water is not harming any fish or marine life so it is environmentally friendly.

Salt systems are nice, however, I have seen a customer turn a salt water pool system into a battery. NOT GOOD.. I would recommend using a UV System.

It wouldn't make a great deal of difference aside from making the water feel better to swim in. Salt water pools also have chlorine generators that convert part of the salt in the water into chlorine.

By loosing some of the water and replacing it with unsalted water you will need to work out how much water will have to be thrown out to get the correct salt levels.

Yes You can. As a matter of fact the salt will actually make the water feel better to swim in. In a salt water pool the concentration of salt is about the same as that you would find in tear drops, this makes the water easier on the eyes. Salt water pools are in fact chlorinated pools where the salt in the water is run through a chlorinator that produces the chlorine electronically. So there is nothing to worry about.
