Salt Water Pool Chlorinators
Which Salt Water Chlorinator System is Best?
Salt chlorinators automatically produce chlorine from salt effectively and safely. If you want a sanitized and clear pool with a low chlorine content, a salt chlorinator is the perfect pool accessory.
The best salt chlorinator system is one that has low maintenance requirements, and that adds to the comfort level of the water. The brands we recommend include Zodiac, Davey, and Pentair.
What are the Benefits of a Saltwater Pool?
There are several benefits to converting to a saltwater pool chlorinator:
- You don’t have to go through the hassle of buying, transporting, and using chlorine.
- A salt chlorinator saves money on pool chemicals.
- Saltwater pools are less abrasive to the eyes, skin, and hair than conventional chlorine pools.
- There’s no build-up of chloramines and a less prominent chlorine smell.
- Lower pool chemical maintenance.
Do Saltwater Pools Kill Bacteria?
A saltwater chlorinator doesn’t create a chlorine-free pool. Instead, it uses dissolved salt to produce chlorine.
Salt chlorinators use electrolysis to convert salt—sodium chloride (NaCl)—into hypochlorous acid (HClO), and sodium hypochlorite. Chlorine gas, hydrogen gas, and sodium hydroxide also form during the process.
The hypochlorous acid has a neutral electrical charge which breaches the negatively charged cell walls of pathogens, killing them. Sodium hypochlorite kills viruses, bacteria, mould, and fungi by oxidizing the molecules of their cells.
