Sparkling-clean pool and spa water invites a healthy, active lifestyle.
A salt generator is a machine that replaces the need for liquid chlorine to be poured directly into your pool or stored at your home. Traditional liquid chlorine is poured directly into the pool at large quantities and takes time for it to balance out for use.
The salt generator has one job, and that is to generate chlorine by converting salt to chlorine in liquid form and feed it to your pool consistently eliminating the highs and low levels of chlorine. The generator passes the salt through the cell of the machine and it is then converted to chlorine. The best part is that the salt is maintained at a much lower level than contact lens solution, leaving no “salty” taste to the water.
Even with weekly pool service, a salt chlorinator is equipment to consider. Although your pool service technician balances your chemicals so your pool is operating at its optimal level, there are some benefits to consider when converting to a salt system.
Benefits of salt-generated chlorine:
- No need to buy, store, or handle liquid chlorine products.
- It is described by many pool owners with these systems that the water feels softer and more comfortable than that of water from a regular chlorinated pool.
- Better air and water quality, which is helpful for people that are ultra-sensitive to chlorine, and will not discolor your bathing suits.
- No more red eyes.
- Because you are producing your own salt instead of having to buy, store, and handle hazardous chemicals to sanitize your swimming pool, you will be swimming in an environmentally friendly swimming pool.
What Is A Pool Automation System?
Just like many things these days you can also have your pool system to operate at your fingertips. By installing a control hub and downloading an app you can control all of your pool systems from your phone or tablet. By setting up an automation system you can remotely make sure that all of your systems are working properly, or make an adjustment so that the spa is heated and ready for when you get home.
Is A Pool Automation System For Me and What Will I Need?
No matter what side of the tech spectrum you are on, adding automation for your pool and spa can simplify your life. Most automation systems connect wirelessly to your home network, and the control hub will be connected to your pump, heater and additional devices such as lights, chlorinators and water and fire features.
