Swimming Pool News, Hints & Tips


“But I have a salt pool!”

I hear this a lot, and yes, many pools today are salt pools. And, many owners sometimes confuse that with thinking it is a non-chlorine pool. But what they really have is a saltwater basin, that when exposed to a 12 volt electrical current and specialized metal plates, a conversion takes place turning salt into a chlorine product. In other words, a chlorine generator. There are many brands of chlorine generators on the market, but we install and trouble shoot mostly these three: Hayward AquaRite, Pentair IntelliChlor and Jandy AquaPure. Check out their websites at: www.hayward-pool.com, www.pentairpool.com, and www.jandy.com,  and discover more about the advantages of chlorine generation, especially with swimming comfort and overall chlorine consistency.
