Pool salt systems offer a simpler and safer alternative to pool maintenance, eliminating the need for harsh chlorination chemicals to sanitize the water. To better understand how it works, and how the system is maintained to maximum efficiency, Designing Spaces paid a visit to Bill and Lisa’s, and brought along Emily Arthurs from Morton Salt to show us how salt is now the “new” chlorine.
Saltwater pools still maintain a level of chlorine, except they use a salt chlorine generator to produce their own chlorine. Morton Pool Salt system provides the right kind of salt, manufactured especially for swimming pools, that is used by salt chlorinator systems to generate “free” chlorine. Maintain your salt water pool to maximum effectiveness!
Pool Salt System as the New Chlorine
Families are diving into their pools to enjoy the cool and refreshing water …. not to experience the harsh effects of chlorine!
Summer is in full swing and families are diving into their pools to enjoy the cool and refreshing water ….. not to experience the harsh effects of chlorine!
Red-irritated eyes, bleached green hair and aging to bathing suit fabric…does not spell “summer fun”. Salt water pool systems offer a simpler and safer alternative to pool maintenance, for a clean and refreshing swim – without the use of harsh chemicals!
It’s estimated that over 50% of all new pools are equipped with the salt water pool system technology. What are these systems all about?
In traditional chlorine pools, the pool owner manually adds granulated or liquid chlorine to the water. Saltwater pools maintain a level of chlorine, except they use a salt water chlorinator to produce the “free” chlorine ions that keep your pool clean and refreshing.
All you need to do to keep this system going is to add pool salt. With Morton Pool Salt:
- No need to transport big jugs of chlorine or other harsh chemicals
- Your pool water will not look, feel or taste like in traditional pools using chlorine
- Morton Pool Salt has fine grains that dissolve fast
- Morton Pool Salt has no additives, and no anti-caking agents
- The bag has a handle and easy pour spot
Chlorine is still in the water but in a different form – the salt chlorinator system generates the “free” chlorine which destroys “chloramines” responsible for that chlorine order and red eyes!
Salt chlorinator systems are effective against bacteria, algae, ammonia and other organic matter that gets in to the pool.
