"Questions about Saltwater for Commercial Pools?"
We are routinely asked, “Should we convert our commercial chlorinated pools to a commercial saltwater pools?”
This question is not a difficult question to answer, but there’s not an easy answer that fits everyone’s application. There are many opinions on this subject. While making this important decision for your aquatic facility, you should search and learn as much information as possible before committing to this conversion. One needs to first ask several questions to see if a salt pool (also known as a saline pool) is right for them. The first question to ask is why are you considering changing?
Now For The Good News
Many of these types of corrosion issues pop up when an existing pool that was designed for chlorine is converted to a salt water system. IF the original construction didn’t account for corrosive materials (such as salt), the effect of continual salt saturation can quickly destroy much of your pool. Much of the above kinds of damage from salt can be avoided by building from scratch with materials known to withstand the effects of salt. In the end, deciding between a salt pool system and a chlorine pool system means doing some homework first. It’s important to understand the long-term cost implications before you jump in and convert a chlorinated pool to a salt water pool.
