saltwater poolSaltwater pools are an aspect of the industry that has seen quite a bit of growth in recent years. What many of your customers may not be aware of are the benefits of saltwater pools. Despite the larger initial investment, there are numerous reasons for your potential customers to be interested in this type of pool.

Less Maintenance Required

The saltwater system works by producing chlorine as the pool needs it. The salt in the pool passes through the salt cell and is then converted into chlorine. This means that pool owners don’t have to physically handle, transport, or store chlorine. However, it doesn’t mean that there is no maintenance – owners must still occasionally check their pool’s chlorine levels.

Soft, Smooth Feel

Something saltwater pool owners love is the silky feeling of the water itself. Traditional, highly chlorinated water can feel harsher to the skin. In fact, it doesn’t just feel better, it is better. Saltwater pools have only a tenth of the salt the ocean has, allowing it to gently moisturize your skin. It also doesn’t dry your hair it nearly as much.

Less Irritation for Skin and Eyes

Most people have experienced the skin and eye irritation that comes with swimming in regular chlorine pools. Red, irritated eyes and dry skin can make for an uncomfortable rest of the day following a swim. Although skin and eyes can still get irritated from a saltwater pool, the chances are greatly reduced.

There are so many great benefits to saltwater pools that your customers are certain to love. However, there are a few things they should keep in mind:

  • Saltwater can damage some parts and accessories
  • This type of pool may use more electricity
  • Service and repairs may require a professional with saltwater experience
