A good introduction to Saltwater Pools...<br />Saltwater pools are on the rise as an alternative to traditional chlorine-based pools. Aside from being a more natural option, saltwater pools have a number of advantages.<br />1. Comfort: Salt is softer on your skin than chlorine. Also, chlorine has the tendency to cause red eyes, itchy skin, and discolored hair. If you use plan to use your saltwater swimming pool on a regular basis, you won't have to suffer any of those symptoms of chlorine.<br />2.Chemical: Another advantage of saltwater swimming pools is the lowered use of chemicals. This means that a saltwater swimming pool is more environmentally safe. You also won't have to suffer the odor of chlorine anymore.<br />3. Maintenance: Lower maintenance is also one of the advantages of saltwater swimming pools. They virtually clean themselves and require much less attention than pools that just use chlorine. The chlorine generator converts salt into chlorine, so you don't have to keep a constant check on the water sanitation.<br />4. Cost: Over time, you will save money with a saltwater pool. While the best pool options are initially a lot more expensive to put in, they are a more cost-effective system in the end.

 Case Study: Green Tint to Plaster in Salt Water Pool<br /><br /><br />Swimming Pool Inspection Services was called upon recently to inspect a swimming pool whose plaster had a greenish tint to it after being power washed. It was determined that the salt water chlorinator caused the green tint. However, it was also noted that the plaster may have been damaged from being drained for an extended period of time.<br />Our inspector met with the homeowner who stated that after coming back from vacation, the water in the pool was green and full of debris. She had the pool drained and cleaned, but a green tint still remained in the plaster. She was also concerned that damage had been sustained to the plaster by leaving the pool drained since the cleaning.<br /><br />Pool is empty with a green tint to the plaster<br />Inspection Observations and Analysis<br />In addition to the green tint to the plaster, and the fact that the pool was drained, our inspector noted that there were bubbles and blisters in isolated areas of the plaster.<br /><br />Damaged section of plaster<br />Our inspector noted that the green tint was caused by normal wear and tear, and the fluctuating alkalinity of the salt water pool. The salt system works by creating chlorine from salt. It also creates a base, raising the pH balance of the water as it works.<br />Acid then needs to be added on a regular basis to bring the pH back down to a regular level. The high amounts of acid added attack the metallic parts of the pool equipment, specifically the copper in the brass heat exchangers of the heater. These metals are exchanged and the metal becomes part of the solution that is the pool water.<br />Then, as the water becomes basic again, the metals fall out of solution and are deposited on the pool walls. This gives the pool a slight green tint from the oxidized copper deposits. Our inspector also stated that when water is added back into the pool, the tint would appear more blue than green.<br /><br />He also stated that the blistering of the plaster was caused by normal wear and tear, but was likely speeded up by having the pool drained for an extended period of time.<br />Repair Estimates<br />Our inspector recommended that the pool was cleaned and pressure washed, the filter cleaned, and the pool refilled. This would cost approximate $570. If it later turned out that the plaster did need to be replaced, this would cost approximately $5,800. It was stated that once the pool was refilled, the damage to the plaster could become more noticeable with water getting behind the cracks in the plaster.

Did you know that your ozone swimming pool will not only keep you healthier, but it will also save you money over time?<br /><br />For example and to begin with, as ozone is a lot cleaner and gentler on the chlorinator parts than chlorine is, you will no longer have to replace your salt cells every 4 or 5 years. This will literally save you hundreds of dollars.

 <br />Chlorine has a huge variety of uses; as a disinfectant and purifier, in plastics and polymers, bleach, solvents, agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals, as well as an intermediate in manufacturing other substances where it is not contained in the final product.<br /><br />Chlorine is used worldwide to purify water supply as the ultimate defense against waterborne microbiological infection. Modern day cholera epidemics in Peru, China, India or Africa exemplify the devastating consequences of poor sanitation.<br /><br />Chlorine also plays a critical role in the productions of thousands of commercial products. Products reliant on chlorine’s unique properties include every household item such as bleach and disinfectant to bullet-resistant vests, computer hardware, silicon chips and automotive parts.<br /><br />Chlorine itself is a gas at room temperature. Ordinary table salt (sodium chloride, NaCl) is half chlorine, and a simple electrochemical reaction with salt water produces chlorine gas easily. That same reaction produces sodium hydroxide (NaOH), and by mixing chlorine gas with sodium hydroxide you create sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl). When you buy a gallon of bleach at the grocery store, what you are buying is the chemical sodium hypochlorite mixed with water in a 5.25-percent solution. You're buying salt water that has been changed slightly by electricity.<br /><br />Chlorine is chlorine, so the chlorine in bleach is the same as the chlorine in drinking water and in a swimming pool. In fact, you can use chlorine bleach to treat a swimming pool or to treat drinking water. A gallon of bleach provides 1 part per million (PPM) of chlorine to 60,000 gallons (about 250,000 liters) of water. Typically, a pool is treated at a rate of 3 PPM, and drinking water is treated at anywhere from 0.2 PPM to 3 PPM depending on the level of contamination and the contact time.<br /><br />Chlorine is used in pools and drinking water because it is a great disinfectant. It is able to kill bacteria and algae, among other things. Chlorine also makes a great stain remover, but not because of the chlorine itself. Natural stains (as well as dyes) produced by everything from mildew to grass come from chemical compounds called chromophores. Chromophores can absorb light at specific wavelengths and therefore cause colors. When chlorine reacts with water, it produces hydrochloric acid and atomic oxygen. The oxygen

Salt Systems (Salt-Chlorine Generators) for Inground and Aboveground Swimming Pools<br /><br />You can say goodbye to harsh chemicals & chlorine odor, and irritated eyes when you use a salt system (Salt-chlorine generator) to sanitize your swimming pool. Salt chlorine generators use ordinary salt to naturally produce pure chlorine. By doing so, salt water chlorine generation provides the sanitization necessary to keep pool water clean without the need for handling or frequent monitoring of chlorine. As a result, pool owners who use salt chlorine generators can enjoy remarkable convenience and safety in addition to sparkling clean, crystal clear swimming water that's soft, silky - and much less effort than traditional sanitizers.<br /><br />Specialty Pool Products' line of swimming pool supplies includes a diverse selection of high quality swimming pool salt chlorine generators from trusted brand names such as Hayward, Jandy, Intex, Blue Essence and others. With today's models capable of sanitizing up to 50,000 gallons, every swimming pool owner can enjoy the benefits and advantages that come with using a salt chlorine generator to achieve and maintain beautifully clean, inviting swimming pool water.<br /><br />Salt-Chlorine Generators are safe for use in all pool surfaces, including fiberglass, vinyl, plaster, and concrete swimming pools and provide for easy yet effective pool maintenance. By evenly dispersing chlorine and by providing simple adjustment of chlorine output, salt chlorine generators allow pool owners to spend more time enjoying their pool rather than dealing with harsh, dangerous chemicals. Similarly, Salt Systems are exceptionally safe and easy to use, and will provide consistently clean, silky water. How do they work? Typically, salt systems utilize a natural electrolytic process to generate pure chlorine. The salt concentration is very low (less than a teaspoon per gallon of pool water), but it's sufficient to generate free chlorine, naturally! The chlorine continuously kills algae, bacteria & contaminants, then reverts back to salt & the process repeats. There's less time spent on maintenance, less money spent on chemicals and they're fast & easy to install on both new existing swimming pools.<br /><br />Specialty Pool Products' selection of salt water chlorine generators includes models for both Inground and Aboveground pools:<br /><br />Salt Systems (Salt-Chlorine Generators) for Inground Swimming Pools:<br />Goldine AquaRite<br />Autopilot<br />Hayward SwimPure<br />Jandy AquaPure Ei<br />Hayward Salt & Swim<br /><br />Salt Systems (Salt-Chlorine Generators) for Inground Swimming Pools:<br />Intex<br />AquaTrol<br />ChlorEase<br />Simpl-Chlor<br />Saltron Retro<br /><br />All of our salt chlorine generators will provide automatic, natural pool sanitization and are available at competitive prices.
