Salt water chlorine generators transform ordinary salt into free chlorine for both pool and spa water that’s clean, clear and soft on your skin. They are one of the best ways to keep your pool and spa safely sanitized. Through the electrolytic process, salt is converted into pure chlorine as it passes through the salt cell. Salt systems help create a more inviting pool experience without the harsh odors of chlorine with water that is noticeably softer to the skin and kinder to the eyes of all pool users. Salt water pools contain only a teaspoon of salt per gallon, about one-twelfth that of seawater. As a result, the water in salt water pools does not taste salty. Unlike traditional chlorine additives that must be constantly added, salt is recycled continuously day after day. Most chlorine generators even keep themselves clean with an automatic reverse cycling feature that helps prevent scale build up for longer salt cell life.
