TAMPA, FL, February 04, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A debate has been ongoing for some time among swimming pool owners and installers about whether a chlorine system or a saltwater system is the best choice for a pool owner. All Seasons Pools, a builder of swimming pools in Jacksonville, Fla., believes that each system has its own benefits and drawbacks, making personal preference the main determiner of which system should be installed.
Saltwater vs. Chlorine
Saltwater pools use dissolved salt to cleanse and sanitize pool water, whereas chlorine pools use chlorine tablets to do so. For both systems, owners must test the water regularly to determine the pH levels present and must adjust their chemical balance based on their Jacksonville swimming pool's pH.
Saltwater pools have the advantage of needing less maintenance and having a lower overall operating cost, but they require a larger initial investment than a chlorine pool. All Seasons Pools' swimming pool contractors note that saltwater pools still contain chlorine in their water as chlorine is a byproduct of the salt that you put in the water. The concentrations are significantly lower in saltwater pools, so swimmers are less likely to experience stinging eyes, damaged skin and hair or faded swimsuits.
Chlorine pools are easy to operate and can clear the water of bacteria more quickly than saltwater pools. They also require less of an initial investment, but their over-time cost is higher than a saltwater pool's. A chlorine pool will also require more of your time to maintain, though that maintenance will be easy, as chlorine evaporates from the system.
Ultimately, the decision to install a saltwater or chlorine pool should be based on your personal needs and preferences. Each will provide a safe swimming environment for you and your family to enjoy. Learn more at http://www.allseasonspools.com.
