Benefits of a Saltwater Swimming Pool

Honeysuckle Nursery and Design Saltwater Swimming Pool

Saltwater swimming pools offer more health benefits than a chlorinated pool and they cost less in chemical maintenance.

Backyard swimming pools are highly desirable and a lot of fun, but you can actually elevate your backyard recreation even more with a saltwater swimming pool. Saltwater pools have a lot of benefits over traditional pools and will be enjoyed and envied by everyone who tries it. From softer water to lower bills, saltwater swimming pools are the next generation of backyard pools.

Physical Health

Saltwater pools have a lot of physical health benefits over traditionally chlorinated pools. For one thing, they don’t irritate your eyes and nose as much as chlorinated pools. Their salt content is low at about 3,000 parts per million (ppm) which is a far cry from the ocean’s 35,000 ppm. It’s only half the salt content of human tears, which have approximately 7,000 ppm. Saltwater pools also benefit your body’s natural moisture retention. Hard, chlorinated water tends to dry out and damage the skin, but saltwater pools don’t have this effect. Saltwater can also be beneficial for muscles and joints, relieving some of the pain from things such as strenuous exercise or arthritis.

Mental Health

Something about gliding around in soft water that’s healing your body seems to be good for the soul. Saltwater therapy has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, so if you’re looking to invest in a pool you’ll enjoy outdoor recreation, physical relaxation, and mental healing all in one convenient package with a saltwater pool. It’s good for the body and the mind, but those aren’t the only benefits of a saltwater pool.

Environmentally Friendly

It might not come as much of a surprise that saltwater pools are more environmentally friendly than chlorinated pools. Chlorine isn’t a major hazard to terra firma, but it produces gasses that create air pollution and a lot of secondary problems in the ozone. Saltwater pools don’t off-gas as much as traditionally chlorinated pools, which gives the ozone a break.

Lower Maintenance Costs

Salt for your saltwater pool costs significantly less than chlorine, so your saltwater pool will actually save you money. If your pool is somewhat larger, you could save hundreds of dollars in chemical maintenance costs each year by investing in a saltwater pool.
