The addition of a swimming pool to the family’s backyard is typically very exciting. It is important to be fully aware of the options and responsibilities that you will have as a pool owner so that you can install the pool that is right for your needs.
One of the most significant decisions to be made is whether you a traditional chlorine pool or a salt water pool will be built. Each has its own benefits, but many people are unaware of those associated with salt water pools due to their smaller number.
A salt water pool uses a salt chlorine generator to convert the salt into mild forms of chlorine. This chlorine is then slowly released into the water to kill bacteria that may be harmful to swimmers without exposing these individuals to potent chemicals that could irritate the skin. Many who have this type of pool have stated that they are much easier to maintain because there is no need to add chemicals regularly.
