When you are considering building a new swimming pool, there are various things to consider. The size and layout of the backyard are very important, as are the dimensions and shape of the desired swimming pool. Often the next decision is whether to purchase an above ground or in-ground swimming pool, and if you want a saltwater swimming pool or a freshwater pool. In this article we’re going to discuss one of the benefits of saltwater swimming pools – the salt chlorinator.
One of the most popular benefits to these systems is that you don’t have to store chlorine at your home. Chlorine is one of the most dangerous chemicals you can store — if you have to store chlorine make sure the area is well ventilated because it can release a very toxic gas. When you choose a saltwater swimming pool, you can avoid buying or storing chlorine altogether, thanks to the chlorine generator.
The chlorine generator will be one of the most important components of your saltwater swimming pool. Chlorine generators produce chlorine for your pool, eliminating the need to purchase and apply chlorine directly to the water. Through a process called electrolysis, water with a correct level of salt in it passes over the chlorine generator cell and through an electric current. A portion of the salts split into hypochlorous acid and sodium hypochlorite – the sanitizing ingredients that are used in swimming pools.
This simple technology has been fine-tuned for pools and is now the preferred way of chlorinating saltwater swimming pools. With a salt chlorinator system, you can have a great-looking backyard oasis with less swimming pool maintenance and chemical concerns. You’ll love your saltwater swimming pool – less chemicals means healthier skin and more comfortable eyes!
