You may have heard about salt water pools becoming all the rage, offering an alternative to the use of harsh chemicals to purify. How is it different?
Well, 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; and salt water pools kill chloramines faster than chlorine pools!
Even though chlorine kills contaminates, the chloramines themselves stay in the water, requiring additional chlorine to remove them.
As an alternative to using harsh chlorine chemicals, our water is purified using a salt cell or salt generator.
And each tub at Soak Boulder will contain 10-20 pounds of salt!
Saltwater purification negates the need for chlorine tablets and shock treatment to disinfect from germs, bacteria and algae.
