Installing a backyard pool on your property is an exciting addition that can include chlorinated or saltwater pools. Pools improve your property value while giving your family a lifetime of fun memories. Honeysuckle Nursery and Design offers many types of pools, but we are focusing on chlorinated and saltwater swimming pools in this blog. 

Chlorinated Swimming Pools

The conventional idea of a pool is a chlorinated swimming pool. Chlorinated pools are common and cost more to maintain than saltwater pools. However, because they are ubiquitous, it is easier to find maintenance services. Additionally, the chemicals necessary for a chlorinated pool are easy to get ahold of, making them an excellent choice for community pools. 

Saltwater Swimming Pools

Something less conventional but with more benefits for a personal pool is a saltwater pool. They require minimal maintenance and a more natural alternative to chlorinated pools. The salinity level of saltwater swimming pools is lower than the ocean but still enough to be a great health benefit. Like salt baths, swimming in saltwater can improve circulation and skin health and may be an excellent option for use in the cooler months. Salt lowers the freezing point of water. Hence polar plunges usually occur in saltwater.
