Salt pools provide a relaxing way to create an idyllic backyard pool environment, and may offer significant health benefits. Although not completely maintenance free, a salt system requires significantly less time and attention than traditional chlorine-based systems.
Chlorine-filled pools can irritate and water your eyes, especially for those with sensitive skin or asthma. Saltwater pools offer much kinder solution: their salt concentration matches that of tears so as not to cause as much irritation to eyes.
If you enjoy swimming in your backyard pool on warm summer days, a saltwater system could be ideal. Not only will you receive all of the same great exercise in water-based form as before but without all of the chlorine-related irritation that has historically been an issue – your eyes and skin won’t have to contend with irritating chemical fumes!
Salt systems make chlorine less harsh on skin and more eco-friendly by converting it into forms more suitable for human and environmental consumption. They also lower levels of chloramines that bind with bodily fluids and give off an unpleasant odor.
Saltwater pools make maintenance even simpler when you consider they can often go weeks without being attended to and still remain clean due to salt cells monitoring cleanliness and producing chlorine on demand – unlike traditional pools which require weekly trips to purchase chlorine tablets and shocking treatments from stores. Not only is this good news for your budget and environment, but also saves energy!
If you suffer from sensitive skin, swimming in a chlorine pool can be challenging. Traditional pools use high concentrations of chlorine which can dry and irritate the skin as well as stimulate your body to produce extra oil in response to dryness – leading to breakouts. Saltwater pools don’t present this issue due to using less concentrated chlorine forms which are gentler on sensitive skin.
Swimming in salt water pools is beneficial to the skin in multiple ways. It helps remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and make you appear healthier overall; additionally, saltwater pools may also provide relief for conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne.
Individuals suffering from lung issues can also benefit from swimming in a saltwater pool, since conventional chlorinated pools produce large quantities of chlorine byproducts known as chloramines that exacerbate asthma and allergy symptoms. Saltwater systems, on the other hand, periodically convert chlorine into less harsh forms that are easier on eyes and skin.
Great for Sensitive Skin
Saltwater may be an ideal alternative if chlorine pools irritate your eyes and skin, or if asthma or allergies make life unpleasant for you. Salt cells produce water without chloramines which produce strong water smells found at public swimming areas and some pools.
Saltwater pools contain natural exfoliators such as sodium chloride that help soften and smooth skin while simultaneously acting as an excellent way for those sensitive to chlorine to avoid discomfort from exposure to it. They’ve even been known to help relieve itching associated with conditions like eczema, psoriasis and acne.
One major advantage of salt water pools over chlorinated pools is that they don’t irritate your respiratory system like chlorinated pools do, as well as helping ease joint and muscle aches by providing relief through bromine mineral content that soothes these issues.
No Chlorine Smell
Saltwater pools produce less chloramines than traditional chlorine pools, which are chemicals that react with bodily fluids such as sweat to cause them to smell unpleasant. Chloramines can irritate eyes and skin as well as trigger allergic reactions in those sensitive to chlorine-contaminated water, leading to symptoms like stinging eyes, itchy skin or respiratory problems in sensitive individuals. Saltwater pools have the advantage of producing their own chlorine through salt production in order to keep chloramine levels at an acceptable level.
An automated salt system for your pool makes life much simpler by producing its own chlorine using trichlorocyanuric acid, saving both time and money by creating its own system of chlorine production.
