Salt chlorination delivers 3Cs - the comfort of silky-soft water, that doesn’t turn eyes red, bleach clothing or toys and it eliminates the chlorine odor associated with traditional factory-produced chlorine.
It also delivers convenience. The convenience of not having to buy and lug heavy buckets and jugs of chlorine each season and it takes the guess work out of chlorinating your pool. No more unhealthy chemical highs and lows and it all happens automatically – that’s convenient.
