Do I really want a Salt Water Pool? We have many customers that are confused about salt water pools. Here are the facts: This technology has been around for years. The pool is still being sanitized with chlorine. Instead of purchasing chlorine, the system has an in-line cell that electronically charges the salt water and produces a chlorine gas. This is more of a natural process that helps to eliminate a lot of the harmful smells and the troubles experienced with regular chlorinated pools. This does not end the need to take care of your pool. The water still needs to be properly balanced , even more so to protect the cell and to ensure water quality. Many of our newly constructed pools are salt water pools and our customers love the ease, as well as how the water feels.
