Should you choose saltwater or chlorine?

While chlorine is efficient in disinfecting a pool, it is also expensive to maintain, and can irritate sensitive skin. Saltwater pools make for a great alternative to chlorine.

Saltwater pools are just as clean as chlorine but require far less maintenance and isn’t harsh on skin

Saltwater is good for you and for the environment

An added advantage of having a saltwater system rather than chlorine is that you will no longer have to handle or store toxic chemicals.

Without these harsh chemicals, saltwater pools have no odor and will not make your hair dry and bathing suit discolored.

Salt and chlorine systems available:

•  Pentair – Intellichlor

•  Goldline – Aqua-Rite

•  Auto Pilot – Pool Pilot

•  SGS Breeze

We install traditional chlorine systems, too!
