Salt water pools are the swimming areas where we use salt water instead of chlorinated freshwater. Management of such a pool is almost similar to the management of freshwater pool.
You have to be aware about the capacity of the pool so that you are able to put suitable amount of salt in it to make it acceptable or comfortable for swimming. In case the level of salt drops in the pool, a situation may arise in which the chlorine stops producing.
Basically, the most important tip that has to be followed without fail is that the salt to water ratio must be appropriate. The salt to water ratio can be anywhere between 2500 and 3000 ppm. Generally, pool care takers make a big mistake by going below this value.
Installing saltwater indicator is also good as it gives you information about salt level in the pool. In case, the salt level increases, you can balance the chlorine levels in the pools by discharging more chlorine into the pool by turning on the knob of the controls. This will ensure that the pool is balanced.
Most of the problems in the salt water pool arise due to improper handling of the pool. Proper maintenance from the side of the pool care taker is essential to prevent some problems. If people coming to swim in the pool complain of symptoms of skin irritation, high-chlorine smell, etc., one should check the chlorine levels in the pool.
Even though the maintenance of salt water pool maintenance requires less chemicals than freshwater pools, they are certainly more technical when it comes to adjusting the proper level of salt and water in the pool. The maintenance cost is generally not very high and most of the equipment required are a one time investment as they work for years.
