Saltwater pools are an increasingly popular choice for homeowners in France. We consider the advantages of using a saltwater pool in your home.
What is a saltwater pool?
If you have a saltwater pool, rather than adding chlorine to the pool water you add salt… a generator then converts it to chlorine.
What are the benefits of a saltwater pool?
- Saltwater is a natural way of keeping the pool clean.
With a saltwater pool, you do not require high levels of chlorine to keep the pool sanitised.
- It is better for you!
Saltwater has fewer toxins – therefore it is better for your overall health including your skin. There is evidence that salt has a range of minerals which help to keep the skin looking good and healthy.
The benefits are not only for your skin though: saltwater pools are gentler on your eyes compared to chlorinated pools.
- It is a different experience
Unlike a pool which is highly chlorinated, swimming in a saltwater pool feels delightfully different… almost like you are bathing in the ocean!
- It is less expensive to maintain
Now here is an additional bonus! Generally speaking saltwater pools are less expensive to maintain than chlorinated ones as the material costs are lower.
- It is a stress reducer…
Research has also shown that saltwater benefits your mind – not just your body. Saltwater provides calming and detoxifying effects, offering the perfect way to relax.
- Good for environment
Saltwater does contain a small amount of chlorine. A key difference though is that its is naturally chlorinated and as it evaporates it is less detrimental for the environment.
