The pros and cons of Salt Water vs. Chlorine pools

  • Saltwater is an expense when it is installed, but after that you do not have to add chlorine, as salt makes chlorine. This saves you $60 for every bucket you buy.
  • Salt is softer on your skin.
  • The new salt systems are great, as they monitor and clean themselves.
  • You also do not have the obnoxious little floater in your pool all the time with salt.

Both systems generate Disinfection By Products (DBP). Both systems are very climate dependent and also vary based on pool usage.
