Chlorine vs. Saltwater Swimming Pools

a&a manufacturing pool partsBen Diefenderfer
Saltwater pools use a process called “electrolysis” to produce just enough chlorine to disinfect the water. Commonly referred to as chlorine generators, saltwater pool systems make an electrolysis process with a control box and a salt cell. As pool water passes through the cell its exposed to a low voltage of electric current sent from the control box, which separates the sodium atom from the chloride atom and essentially transforms the salt into sodium hypochlorite and hypochlorous acid. Hypochlorous acid is the same sanitizing component produced when any type of chlorine is added to pool water.

What is Chlorine?

Chlorine is one of the MOST EFFECTIVE sanitizing agents for not only swimming pools, but for water in general. Small amounts of chlorine are commonly added to city tap water in order to combat germs and bacteria, so it makes sense for a “puddle” of water the size of a swimming pool to use chlorine more frequently. With routine chemical checks you may find that you go through chlorine slower or faster depending on a few variables not limited to: pool usage, weather related events, and outside temperature.
