We listened to what our clients have had to say about converting to salt chlorination, and we’d like to help provide clarification on some of the most common questions.
Many are skeptical of the salt chlorination “boom” that has taken over conversations at trade shows, HOA board rooms, and between pool-goers all over the state. The truth is, salt is a great alternative to liquid chlorine and chlorine erosion systems. There are many operational reasons we like salt chlorination systems, such as the ease at which chemistry levels are maintained in a salt pool due to the near neutral pH. Keeping the chemistry balanced prolongs the surface of your pool and helps to also keep the water crystal clear.

Many of our clients have seen positive survey responses from pool members, regarding their recent conversion from liquid or stick chlorination to salt. In related member response, some pool members sought out the pool in which they are currently members simply based on the fact that the pool was operating with salt chlorination. So, next time someone brings up the question of whether or not a salt system is right for your pool, be sure to give Pool Professionals a call and we can consult with you and your members!
