Developers (and marketers) tout the salt water pool’s health benefits as a growing number of new luxury developments are starting to feature them as an amenity. Salt water pools require a greater investment upfront, but the benefits seem to be pretty convincing – lower skin, eye and lung irritation – and of course, that lingering smell of chlorine on your body for days. The ongoing maintenance costs are also lower because you don’t have to buy (as much) chlorine and other chemicals and kits needed to maintain a traditional chlorine pool. SW pools still use some chlorine, but at much lower levels. The water is sanitized by a process called salt chlorination using pool salt systems, which converts dissolved salt into just the right amount of chlorine resulting in “clear luxuriously soft water.”
