“It’s a gross thing to think about, but chlorine mixes with all kinds of human output, including saliva and sweat, which turn into other chemicals called chloramines. Chloramines are responsible for the “chlorine smell” of pools, as well as skin and eye irritation. Even though chlorine kills contaminates, the chloramines stay in the water, requiring additional chlorine to remove them. Salt water pools kill chloramines faster than chlorine pools.”
As an alternative to using harsh chlorine chemicals, our water is purified using a salt cell or salt generator. Saltwater purification negates the need for chlorine tablets and shock treatment to disinfect from germs, bacteria and algae. It is a softer and more environmentally friendly process.
Each tub at Soak contains 10-20 pounds of salt!
