Traditional chlorine systems use chlorine liquid, granules or tablets. The chemical is added right into the water, where it mixes with the water and is distributed throughout the pool. This type of system is easy to set up and anyone can maintain it at home. It does, however, require monitoring. Too little chlorine won’t do the pool any good and too much chlorine leads to the buildup of chloramines, which can irritate skin and burn eyes.
The water found in salt water pools are considered to be effective and gentle to the skin with a low chlorine content. This is good for people who have sensitive skin as well as those who have water allergies.
Salt water pools require less maintenance compared to regular pools. The salt water system that the pool possesses functions as the monitoring system that automatically cleans the water pools.
