My Pool Uses Salt to Sanitize the Water: How Does That Work?
A salt water pool has a salt cell that makes chlorine using electrolysis. That's right, it produces traditional chlorine. Many people like salt water pools because they continuously produce chlorine which reduces the amount of chlorine they have to store or handle. Having a salt system often means less chemical costs (Salt, Muriatic Acid, etc.) however, the average salt cell lasts 5-7 years before needing to be replaced. Overall, the cost between a salt water pool and standard chlorine pool is about the same and your preference.
