Salt systems actually are chlorine systems.
But yo do not have to haul home messy, smelly, and possibly toxic chlorine to dump in your water! Instead, you use common table salt. The salt system uses an electric charge to turn the salt into low levels of chlorine that constantly flow into your swimming pool.
You can realize some of the advantages of a salt system right away.
Some of the advantages of this modern type of water treatment will also be realized later.
Because table salt is inexpensive, you will save money in the long run. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on water treatment chemicals every season, you can buy a big bag of salt! Of course you will have to make the initial investment in a salt water treatment system for your pool. But you will save big on time and money, and probably have many more good water days. If you have ever spent days trying to get rid of a nasty algae bloom which meant more expensive chemicals and trips to the pool store, you will learn to appreciate your new way to get pure sparkling water.
