The truth about salt water sanitizing pools and spas begins with disinfection. Chlorine pools and spas disinfect the water by ridding the water of germs, salt water pools and spas create chlorine to do the exact same job.
All salt water pools and spas require two things, approximately 3,500 parts per million (upfront cost to purchase and distribute 300 pounds) salt per 1,000 gallons of actual salt floating around in the water (you can taste the salt). The other is a “Salt Chlorine Generator” (requires electricity) to convert particles of salt into chlorine in order to sanitize the water. You will not pour or sprinkle raw chlorine into the pool because when the pump is running chlorine is produced and added to the water.
The sanitation methods mentioned above have reported negative side effects for people, are harmful to the environment and costly to maintain.
