Pool Chlorination with Salt and Electrolysis
Sensitivity to pool chlorine can be avoided in salt water pools. Salt-water swimming pools are an attractive alternative to swimmers sensitive to the odor associated with pool chlorine compounds. Landmark Pools is the Suffield area's local custom in-ground swimming pools and spa contractor in greater Hartford. Swimmers who experience unpleasant eye, skin and lung irritation associated with pool chlorination assume they are suffering from excessive chlorine in the pool. Actually, when pool water is irritating, there is not enough chlorine in swimming pool water. You may be surprised to learn that there is no odor to a well-managed pool.
Chlorination is a pool water sanitation method based on adding chlorine either as a gas or as chlorine compounds poured directly into the water. In a poorly maintained pool, unhealthy levels of chloramine compounds can build up and cause irritation. Salt-water swimming pool sanitation is in fact based on chlorination, but the delivery system is very different. Salt water swimming pools use salt and electrolysis to deliver active and natural chlorine into the system. Pool salt is poured into the water, and the electrolyzer is connected to the pool’s filtration circuit. This form of pool water sanitation is less reactive than the conventional chlorination method, and leaves no unpleasant chlorine smell.
