The truth about
- A saltwater pool IS a chlorine pool; a chlorinator turns salt into chlorine
- Salt eats through metal and stone
- Salt corrodes expensive equipment
- A saltwater pool is not a low maintenance option
A saltwater pool isn’t better than a chlorine pool because it IS a chlorine pool. A saltwater pool system is the same thing as a salt “chlorine” generator/salt water chlorinator. Saltwater pools electrically convert pool salt into chlorine. It’s the chlorine that keeps pool water clean, just like the chlorine you buy in buckets.
Fresh Mineral Water®∞ reduces chlorine use and conditions water. A FROG Fresh Mineral Water pool uses up to 50% less chlorine* and conditions the water so its Cleaner, Clearer, Softer and Easier® to maintain. Prefilled cartridges are easy. You never touch any chemicals!
Surfaces on or around salt water pools are susceptible to ugly brown stains, pitting corrosion, and eventually unrepairable damage.
Countless articles and first-hand accounts show and tell the damage that saltwater does to pools, decks, and yards. Want proof? Here are a few images dealers have sent to us that show saltwater damage.
pH levels in saltwater pools tend to be higher and require increased monitoring. Regular doses of muriatic acid have to be added in order to clean your saltwater pools salt cells.
Saltwater chlorinators cost from $600 – $2,500 on average just to get up and running and in 3 to 4 years, salt cells need to be replaced.
Saltwater spillover from your pool onto your pool deck, grass, shrubs and flowers can be costly.
