Is It Worth It To Install A Pool Salt System?

Salt water pools are preferred by many homeowners over chlorine pools for several reasons. A saltwater pool does not contain any liquid chlorine. As a result, the water in a swimming pool is more gentle on your body, especially your skin and eyes. Additionally, salt water pools are usually easier to maintain since the salt cell produces the chlorine necessary to maintain a clean and safe pool.

How Does A Salt Water Pool Differ From A Chlorine Pool?

To keep the water free of bacteria and other harmful contaminants, both pools use chlorine to sanitize it. A chlorine pool uses liquid chlorine to keep the water clean and sanitized. The chlorine is added directly to the water and filtered through the system. To create chlorine from sodium chloride, a salt cell generator is used. To ensure they last 5-6 years, salt generators must be cleaned every 3-6 months.

Can my pool be converted to a saltwater system if I have the right equipment?
Purchasing and installing a salt water chlorination system is necessary to convert a chlorine pool to a salt water pool. To accomplish this conversion, not much pool equipment is required! Salt pool equipment consists primarily of two components. A control box is the first component. Salt cells are the second component. Additionally, there will be some miscellaneous parts and components, such as PVC piping. Making sure that your pool repair company knows how to convert salt systems is a crucial part of the conversion process.

Installing a salt water pool system takes how long?
A new salt system for your pool can be installed the same day if we have the parts in stock for it!

Is Your Pool Salt System Needed To Be Repaired?
A salt cell is the most common part of a pool salt system to need repair. Salt systems are typically repaired by repairing the salt cell, which produces chlorine for your swimming pool.

Is It Possible To Repair A Salt Cell?
Often when a salt cell doesn’t work, you should check the last time the cell was cleaned. If you haven’t cleaned the salt cells for more than 6 months, this could very well be the problem. You can schedule a regular service with us if you need it. We clean salt cells all the time. On the other hand, we can take a look at the cell and recommend a solution based on the diagnosis. Salt cells usually last between 5 and 6 years. It is very likely that you need to replace your computer if you are older than that.

What is the problem with my salt board system?
Other salt system repairs we typically see are salt board repairs. If your cell is functioning properly but your system is not generating chlorine, you may need to replace the main board. We’d be happy to diagnose your issue if you have a question.

The following are a few of the salt systems we recommend and install.
