Saltwater Pool System Installation in Baltimore, MD
A saltwater system creates a better, healthier swimming experience for most people. In a saltwater pool, the water feels soft and your skin feels smooth and refreshed. Saltwater pools are NOT chlorine free pools. However, it is not necessary to handle or buy chlorine tablets with a salt generator. A saltwater pool system essentially produces its own chlorine, which prevents algae and bacteria, and kills microorganisms. Chlorine is generated at the filter system by splitting the sodium chloride molecule. This newly created chlorine is less harsh than traditional chlorine tablets, meaning it is healthier and safer for your hair, eyes, and skin.
The amount of salt in a saltwater pool is negligible – 3,000 parts per million – as compared to a tear (12,000 parts per million) or the ocean (33,000 parts per million). The interesting fact about salt generation is that while chlorine levels at the generator are at a super-chlorinated level, 10 parts per million, the chlorine recombines with the water over the length of the piping and the result is a chlorine level of 1 part per million in the pool, which is the same level as municipal drinking water. This residual chlorine present in the pool eliminates algae and waterline scum build-up.
