All pools need something to help keep it clean and safe. Chlorine has long been the sanitizer of choice. Saltwater is no different, as the charged cell breaks down Salt in the water into Chlorine.

to kill all the bad things that might get in there when you go in it but doesnt hurt you

Chlorine gas isdissolved into the water to chlorinate it this is also what happens in saltwater pools.

They are one and the same. THEY BOTH ARE CHLORINE POOLS!!!

salt water pools don't use chlorine salts, they are bromine salts. So yes, saltwater pool are better for you.

Here is the deal. a "salt water pool" IS a chlorine pool. Only difference is, on a chlorine pool u add chlorine. In a salt pool u add salt and a "Salt Generator" turns the sslt into chlorine... so really both pools use chlorine.... Just saves u the trouble of messing with chlorine and chlorine shocks..

well swimming in saltwater is okay because saltwater is like natural water for our bodies. and with swimming pools, it has chlorine. all chlorine does is try to make the water as pure as possible. but chlorine has a weird smell and it can damage some parts but not that much.

Saltwater pools are not seawater pools. Saltwater pools contain less than 1/3 as salty as seawater. What they use is a chlorine generator to convert salt to chlorine. This eliminates the requirement to add chlorine and other chemicals to your pool. The level of salt is approximate the same as softened water. The good side is you only have to add enough salt to replace what is splashed out as salt unlike chlorine doesn't evaporate.

You are still typically using a salt-water generator to generate chlorine for most saltwater pools, so you are effectively still using chlorine. In effect, chlorine is still the sanitizer. You still need to pay for and haul salt and you typically need to replace a cell every 3-5 years at a cost of about $800. Then there are the potential harmful health effects of chlorine and corrosion to your pool and pool equipment.

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.

Once you have a chlorine reading, the use of Cyanuric Acid will help keep the chlorine from letting sunlight dissipate it. Keep in mind that many induced salywater pools manufacture chlorine from electroylsis of the salt water.

Salt water pools are becoming more common as people find that they are a little more refreshing to swim in. Also, as chlorine tends to bother some, salt pools might be a good alternative.

Saltwater pools generally will have a salt cell installed within the plumbing usually after the heater. It is the cell where the chlorine is produced. It should have a cord on it that leads to a power center. Having your water simply tested for salt will not determine whether or not it is saltwater. Even pools using liquid chlorine(Sodium Hypochlorite) can have high amounts of salt if they haven't been drained in a while.

Salt water pools are chlorine pools it just that the chlorine is electronically made from the salt. Salt water pools have problems with algae the same as just freshwater chlorine pools. If you are lucky you may be able to nip algae in the but by over chlorinating but more often then not you would be well advised to throw some algaecide in the pool to kill it of. (Always follow the directions on the bottle.)

There is no difference other then the actual salt and saltwater chlorination equipment.

Yes you still need a pump and filter. The saltwater system generates chlorine and eliminates the need for chlorine tabs. You will still need to keep the water balanced and continue normal pool maintenance.

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

Hydrochloric acid and potasium help alot

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

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

Absolutely! It is very common for customers to want the feel of saltwater without the chlorine generator. ALL CHLORINE POOLS CONTAIN SALT. Chlorine reverts back to salt when used so every pool that has chlorine in it also has salt.

SoftSwim from BioGuard is the best system out there for No-Chlorine pools.

chlorine is used in pools to disinfect them.

Yes. Chlorine is used to prevent the growth of algae. Some pools use salt.
