Winter is coming up soon, so the idea of a saltwater pool may seem foreign. However, when spring and summer roll around, adding a saltwater pool to your outdoor living space can enhance it in many ways. Also, because pools have come a long way, and there are ways to heat them, taking a dip during a colder season isn’t impossible. We’re here to tell you what’s so satisfying about a saltwater pool.
What is a Saltwater Pool?
A saltwater pool isn’t an oceanwater pool. In other words, you shouldn’t expect to dive into the ocean. These types of pools only have about one-tenth of saltwater in them. While these pools aren’t completely chlorine-free, they create their chlorine using salt through electrolysis. Electrolysis is a process in which chemicals decompose by passing through an electric current through a liquid solution containing ions. In other words, this process helps to sanitize a pool in ways that are more advanced than traditionally chlorinated pools. Now, we’ll discuss what’s so satisfying about this type of pool by highlighting its benefits.
Saltwater Pools are Less Chlorinated
These types of pools have reduced chlorine levels. What this means is that they are less irritating for your eyes and skin. They also have a more straightforward sanitation process than traditionally chlorinated pools. The sanitation system operates on its own and isn’t challenging to maintain whatsoever. You can appreciate a healthier, more hygienic swim.
Saltwater Is Soft
Salt makes the water feel smooth and silky. By submerging your skin into this kind of water, it can make it softer. Coming out of a heavily chlorinated pool tends to irritate the skin and leaves it feeling dry or raw. Not to mention, it can make a swimsuit fade over time or even strip your hair. You can look forward to not experiencing that at home. You can also look forward to swimming in a pool that doesn’t have that chlorine smell.
Investing in a Pool Makes Your Home More Pleasing
Taking a swim at the community is a way to bond with your neighbors. However, sometimes you need a little privacy. Incorporating a pool into your outdoor living space gives you the privacy that you deserve. If you’ve always wanted to add a swimming pool to your outdoor living space, but you have sensitive skin or allergies, then give us a call. A saltwater pool is a solution that will satisfy you.
