There are many people who are more comfortable with the idea of swimming in salt-water pools. It is believed that the traditional chlorination systems cause lung, skin or eye irritation in sensitive children. While it is true that improper chemistry may indeed be responsible for such irritation, there is an alternative method of water purification. If you are sensitive to chlorine, salt-water swimming pools may suit your preferences in the family swimming pool. If you or your family would prefer a less reactive alternative to pool sanitation, install a salt-water system in your Landmark Swimming Pool. Some people look into salt-water systems for their backyard pools thinking they can get away from chlorination. A salt-water swimming pool sanitation still relies on some chlorination, but the delivery system is very different.
Salt-water pools use salt – sodium chloride – and electrolysis to continuously deliver disinfecting chlorine compounds. This method avoids generating irritation from by-products that cause lung or eye irritation. A salt water system may significantly reduce the irritation some swimmers experience in chlorinated pools. The salt in salt-water swimming pools does not affect buoyancy, nor does it disinfect your water from algaes, bacteria, mold and other organisms. In the traditionally chlorinated pool, pool water is maintained by adding either pure chlorine gas or by pouring chlorine compounds into the water. In a poorly maintained pool, unhealthy levels of chloramine compounds can build up and cause irritation.
