Saltwater Swimming Pools vs. Chlorinated Swimming Pools

What’s the difference between chlorinated and saltwater swimming pools? Honeysuckle Nursery & Design can help you choose a swimming pool for your home.

At Honeysuckle Nursery & Design, incorporating a backyard swimming pool into your home design is an incredibly exciting process. You might’ve found yourself wondering whether you should opt for a saltwater swimming pool or a chlorinated swimming pool. Choosing a swimming pool that best suits your family’s lifestyle and needs is an important factor of becoming a pool owner. While a saltwater swimming pool is gentle on your skin and can require less maintenance, a chlorinated swimming pool can also provide your backyard with a traditional swimming pool from your childhood memories of summers spent at your local swim club.

Saltwater Swimming Pools

Saltwater swimming pools are well-suited for families looking for a pool that requires minimal maintenance and a more natural alternative to conventional chlorine. What makes saltwater swimming pools different from chlorinated swimming pools? Saltwater swimming pools have a salinity level that’s less salty than the ocean, but gentle on your skin. You don’t need to run to the store for chlorine since saltwater swimming pools rely on adding salt to their system to cleanse the pool. The result? You can enjoy your saltwater swimming pool all season long without having to worry about running out of chlorine! 

Chlorinated Swimming Pools

When most individuals think about a swimming pool, they traditionally draw from memories spent at their childhood swimming club and that signature swimming pool scent after a long day spent swimming in the summer. While traditional chlorine swimming pools require more maintenance than a saltwater swimming pool, chlorine is relatively inexpensive and usually requires very minimal equipment maintenance. In addition, since chlorinated swimming pools are so widespread, repairs are an easy process.
