Salt Water vs. Chlorinated Pool

When we moved into our La Canada fixer-upper, we knew we wanted to put in a pool.  But first things first, we remodeled the kitchen and baths.  Several years later, we could afford a swimming pool and had a standard chlorinated one built.  Our daughters had many birthday pool parties while my husband, George, grilled hot dogs.   About ten years after the pool was put in, I learned about saltwater pools from a client and was intrigued.


Salt Water vs. Chlorinated Pool:

The water is softened, like a water softener.

I, like most people, am not sensitive to salt water and don’t experience dried-out skin or burning eyes.

On the other hand, saltwater pools are more corrosive.  Having had both, I prefer salt water over a chlorinated pool.
