Swimming in Saltwater vs. Chlorine: Knowing Your Options

Taking the plunge into pool ownership can mean that you have a whole lot to learn. You’ll definitely want to weigh your options when it comes to your sanitization system. So, let’s take a look at swimming in saltwater vs. chlorine.

Swimming In Saltwater Vs. Chlorine

One of the biggest decisions you’ll need to make when you begin designing your luxury pool for your Georgia home is whether you’ll choose a traditional chlorine system for sanitization or a gentler saltwater system. Contrary to popular belief, both of these systems actually utilize chlorine to sanitize and clean the water in your pool. 

Traditional Chlorine

The biggest difference is where the chlorine comes from. In a traditional chlorine system, you’ll add the chemical chlorine at intervals when it’s needed in the form of tablets, liquid, or the like. 

Saltwater Chlorine

With a saltwater system, you’ll install a salt generator that utilizes salt that you’ll add to the pool to create chlorine molecules through electrolysis. Both do a great job of keeping your pool clean and healthy. So, what are some reasons for choosing one over the other?

Luxury Saltwater Pools

There are a lot of good reasons to choose a saltwater sanitizing system. Generally speaking, saltwater is a more gentle option for those with sensitive skin, and it is generally easier on the eyes and hair for swimmers. Saltwater pools don’t typically have the harsh chemical smell that traditional systems have. And some people have even said that their saltwater pools seem to make their skin feel softer, which sounds pretty luxurious to us. 

Luxury Chlorine Pools

Likewise, there are also a lot of good reasons to choose a traditional chlorine sanitizing system for your luxury pool. Traditional chlorine systems can be a better choice for staying on budget on the front end of your pool construction. And chlorine systems aren’t difficult to use. Traditional chlorine is a great way to keep your luxury pool beautiful and clean.
