Do you worry about storing chorine for your pool where your kids could get into it?

Having a swimming pool is amazing. You can relax, play, exercise, and make great memories with your family without having to leave your home or share the space with others.

Maintaining a swimming pool is not so amazing. Your pool needs chlorine to kill harmful bacteria, viruses, and other organisms. Unfortunately, concentrated chlorine can be dangerous and is a hassle to buy, transport, handle, and store.

Did you know there’s a way to chlorinate your pool using regular pool salt? You get all the benefits of a safe, chlorinated pool without worrying about dealing with harsh chemicals that are irritating at best and dangerous at the worst.

Let’s learn more about how to chlorinate your pool with salt.

What Is Salt Chlorination?

Traditionally, liquid chlorine has been added to pools to kill microbes, but chlorine has many downsides. With salt chlorination, regular salt is converted into chlorine gas, which provides the germ-killing power of liquid chlorine without the eye burning side effects.

How does it work? Your pool water, with the right amount of dissolved salt in it, goes through a salt chlorine generator, where power dissolves the salt into gas. Then, the chlorine gas dissolves into the water and is returned to the pool.

Benefits of Salt Chlorination

So, what makes salt chlorination better than traditional liquid chlorine?

  • Convenience. Buying, transporting, and storing chlorine is a hassle, and liquid chlorine could seriously harm your children if they get into it.
  • Cost savings. Maintaining a salt chlorination system costs about half as much as maintaining a pool with regular chlorine. Those savings can really add up year after year.
  • Comfort. Salt chlorination avoids the major pitfalls of liquid chlorine such as irritated skin, burning eyes, odor, and spills.
