Salt-Friendly Swimming Pools

Saltwater can be extremely corrosive to your swimming pool if the appropriate measures aren't factored. Check our guide.

Salt-Friendly Swimming Pools

Salt, as most people learn from the metal components in their cars in the winter, is very corrosive. With the advancements in sanitizing technology and alternatives to chlorine becoming more common, the construction of the pools themselves must also improve. Plastics have also improved enough to be able to replace the metal components in above ground swimming pools without jeopardizing structural strength.

The corrosive aspects of salt require the pool to be constructed of more durable, longer lasting material that is not susceptible to corrosion.

The salt-friendly above ground pools available at The Pool Factory are also covered under the manufacturer’s warranty for use with salt system generators.

A salt-friendly swimming pool will have resin (high quality plastic) parts in the following areas:

  • Top Ledges
  • Top Tracks
  • Bottom Tracks
  • Top Plate (jointer)
  • Bottom Plate
  • Caps (Ledge Cover)

Resin will ensure this pool will not rust in those areas due to the added salt. Even if you decide not to use a saltwater generator, a salt-friendly swimming pool is even a great choice when using regular chlorine.

Our Saltwater Series pools also have a stainless steel service panel that protects the skimmer and return lines from rust and corrosion.

Adding a Saltwater Chlorine Generator

A saltwater pool in combination with a saltwater chlorine generator is one of the best ways on the market to make your pool nearly maintenance free. The Solaxx Saltron Retro Jet RJ saltwater chlorine generator found at The Pool Factory has a 2 year manufacturer warranty. This system easily installs to your pool’s return jet fitting, automating your pools need for daily sanitizer!

The water in a salt-friendly swimming pool with a saltwater generator is soft with no taste of salt or resemblance to the ocean. Although since it is about 3500ppm salt, it is very close to the amount of salt in our eyes and therefore not irritating to the eyes or the skin. Chlorine pools are generally considered less healthy as chlorine can often irritate the eyes and skin and also fade clothing and swimsuits.

Solaxx Retro Jet RJ Saltwater Chlorine Generator

This self-contained purification system utilizes a natural process to generate pure chlorine. The electrolytic process uses a very low concentration of salt (less than a teaspoon per gallon) and generates free chlorine.
