In recent years, salt water pool systems have really gained popularity and this is due to the many benefits that the system affords to pool owners. The biggest advantages of a salt water system for Atlanta pool owners are the reduced chemical costs, less time spent on pool maintenance, and how gentle it is on your skin. Whether you are looking to build a new pool, or you have an existing pool that you would like to convert, a saltwater system is definitely worth considering. If you do currently have a chlorine pool, Rock Custom Pools can easily convert your it to using a saltwater pool system.

If you’ve spent time swimming in a chlorine pool, you likely ended the day with dry skin, irritated eyes, and chlorine-damaged hair.  A major benefit of a salt water pool is that it is softer on your skin and hair, and does not agitate your eyes like a chlorine pool does. The salinity of a salt water pool is close to the salinity in your eyes, which means opening your eyes underwater is no longer a problem. Another plus is that a salt water pool is less likely to cause irritation to people with sensitive skin or people who are allergic to chlorine pools.

With a chlorinated pool, you have to constantly test your pool water for its chemical levels. With a saltwater pool system, once your salt level is in the proper range, the system takes care of those chemical levels for you. The rare times you would need to add salt to your pool would either be due to evaporation or excessive rain. With the affordability of salt, you not only lose the hassle of timely pool maintenance, you also save on the high cost of chemicals.

The chemical composition of salt is sodium chloride. Your saltwater pool system comes with something called a “salt water chlorinator” which uses the process of electrolysis to separate the chlorine and the sodium molecules. Therefore, your pool still gets the chlorine it needs to stay clean, but in a form that is less harsh on your hair and skin, and with a much more pleasant odor.
