Salt Systems

SwimmersAbout Salt Chlorine Systems

Salt Chlorine Systems, in use for about 40 years, have recently become more popular through affordability, environmental safety, and ease of use.

Here’s how a salt chlorine system works: salt, or sodium chloride, dissolves in water, separating into sodium (ions) and chloride (ions). By passing a low voltage electrical current between metal and through the water, a salt water chlorine generator then converts the chloride into chlorine in a process called electrolysis.

The newly created chlorine creates a chlorine residual, and is available to sanitize the pool. When it is used up, it changes back to chloride, and allowing the process to start over again. 

Why Use A Salt Chlorine System?

A salt chlorine system has a number of advantages over a harsh chlorine chemical typically added to a pool.
