CHLORINE VS SALTWATER SWIMMING POOLS

A NATURAL ALTERNATIVE TO A CHLORINE POOL

5 BENEFITS OF A SALTWATER SWIMMING POOL

CHLORINE VS SALTWATER SWIMMING POOLSAll over the world, there is a growing demographic of people seeking a natural and healthier alternative to the products we have traditionally used. Whether it is our choice of a house-cleaning item, a beauty product, or our own nutritional diet, there are many of us turning towards products that reduce the amount of unnecessary chemicals. None of us want the chemicals that have become the ‘new normal’ in the majority of products that have been promoted to us over the years, so it only seems natural to find alternatives that we believe can make a positive difference to our lives.

You may have come across the Chlorine vs Saltwater Swimming Pools debate whilst looking for a healthier alternative to the traditional chlorine in swimming pools. The demand is fast increasing and more customers are converting from a traditional chlorine pool system to a saltwater pool in Cyprus. In this article, Cyprus in Style explores the many benefits of Saltwater Swimming Pools and how they differ from Chlorine Pool Systems.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS A SALTWATER SWIMMING POOL?

HEALTH BENEFITS TO THE SKIN & EYES

Sometimes, traditional chlorine pool systems can irritate our skin and eyes. Saltwater is known for its many skin health benefits and aids natural healing for skin disorders such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. The water in a saltwater swimming pool is much softer and kinder than chemical chlorine and does not leave your skin dry and dehydrated. Also, for those of you who love to swim underwater, saltwater pools do not leave you with stinging red eyes after your swim.

NO MORE CHLORINE SMELL IN YOUR HAIR, ON YOUR TOWELS …

We are all familiar with the harsh smell of chlorine in and around traditional chlorine swimming pools. It lingers in our hair, on our towels, and on our swimwear. With saltwater pools, there is no smell at all! You don’t have to worry about rinsing the chemicals off your body after a quick dip and can enjoy the positive effects of the saltwater on your skin.

SALT WATER PROMOTES RELAXATION & SOOTHES ACHES & PAINS

It is not uncommon for people with muscle or joint problems to experience stiffness after swimming in the usual chlorinated swimming pools. Saltwater pools promote natural relaxation in our bodies and contain a mineral called Bromide, which works to relieve any muscular aches and pains.

ELIMINATE HEALTH AND SECURITY RISKS OF CHLORINE

Every pool owner should be aware of what can happen if chlorine is stored and used improperly. Chlorine is flammable, corrosive and poisonous, and can pose a serious risk to our health if not managed correctly. Saltwater pools do not require you to store chlorine on your premises because the saltwater generator creates it for you! This is, for us, one of the strongest benefits of saltwater pools.

REDUCE SWIMMING POOL CLEANING & MAINTENANCE COSTS

You could save a lot of money with a saltwater pool! You will no longer need to buy expensive chemicals and the general costs of running a saltwater pool are lower.

HOW DOES A SALTWATER POOL STAY CLEAN?

A Saltwater generator sanitises the swimming pool by process of electrolysis. Salt is added to the pool and the saltwater generator does the work of naturally converting it into chlorine to offer similar benefits to the chemical option, but with far greater benefits. A Saltwater Pool, although a healthier alternative, does not offer the same irreplaceable benefits of swimming in the sea. They only have about one-tenth of salinity in comparison.

DEMAND IS HIGH FOR SALTWATER POOLS IN CYPRUS

According to Anna Wall, Director at one of Paphos’ leading pool companies, Florida Pools & Spas, “throughout this year, we have seen more and more of our customers requesting a saltwater pool system, and they have been delighted with the results. Some holiday rental companies we work with have also benefitted through increased bookings by offering their clients a Saltwater Swimming Pool. We supply and install Kripsol chlorinators from Spain, as through our research, we believe these to be the best on the market”.

They informed us that ‘converting your pool from chlorinated to salt water’ is a simple process.
