A salt system pool uses an electric current to convert salt into more natural chlorine in your Pool Water.
Salt and water enter the conversion unit. An electric current converts the salt ions into chlorine ions. Chlorinated water exits the System Into Pool.
The benefits of a Saltwater Pool System are numerous.
First, you no longer need those harsh chlorine chemicals, like tablets and shockers. Your pool still has the Sanitizing Power Of Chlorine, but it is naturally made. Since you aren’t dumping chlorine into the water, you don’t have to shock your pool to get a good balance.
Further, the pool never runs low on chlorine since the Saltwater System creates the chlorine as long as the pump is running.
Second, the water is softer and cleaner. The pool experience is just more pleasant.
Third, the maintenance is super easy; simply add the pool salt to the water. Every once in a while you will have to clean out the salt cells. That’s it.
Finally, the saltwater system does not create a Saltwater Pool in Elgin, TX. The level of salt in your pool is less than half the amount of salt in your tears, so it won’t feel (or taste) salty.
While maintenance of the pool salt system is easy, there may come times when you need to make repairs. Salt cells do have a limited life, so will need to be replaced. Technicians at Tropic Island Pools can repair or replace your salt cells quickly and efficiently in Elgin, TX.
The first sign that your salt system might need a repair will be the sound of the pump. Humming, vibrating, or other unusual Noises Coming From Pump are indications that something isn’t working properly. Any time your pool pump sounds different than normal, call Tropic Island Pools.
Contact Tropic Island Pools if you have any concerns about the way your salt system is operating in Elgin, TX.
The pool salt cell is the chamber where the conversion from salt to chlorine happens. Most Pool Salt Cells are designed to last about five years before needing to be replaced. Salt cells will need to be cleaned with regular use.

Salt is a natural element found in the earth, in our body, and in our Elgin, TX homes. It is used to season and preserve our food, rinse out contact lenses, and soften our drinking water. Salt is a very economical commodity. When the ions in salt are passed over specially coated blades and induced with a Low Voltage Electrical Charge, it is converted into chlorine. It is the same process that is used to convert seawater into laundry bleach. When this process is incorporated into your Elgin, TX swimming pool, you have your very own “chlorine generator”.
The pool saltwater system does not contain enough salt to be bad for your skin, but chlorine is not necessarily good for your skin, either. However, the Pool Water In Salt System is softer and contains fewer harsh chemicals than pool water treated with chlorine tablets.
Any pool water is bad for pets and people to drink. The Saltwater System creates chlorine—not something you want your fur family, or your non-fur family, to drink.
