What are the benefits of saltwater pools?

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?

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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!

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.
