Should I get a saltwater swimming pool? That’s the question many homeowners are asking themselves as salt water pools seem to be quite the rage these days.
Whether you are dreaming of owning a saltwater pool or you’re interested in changing your current pool over from a traditional chlorine one, there are several things you should keep in mind.
Overall salt water pools tend to be the better option, but costs and upkeep do play a role and may make you think twice about choosing the saltwater option. If you have sensitive skin or are just looking to minimize chemicals around your home, then a salt water pool system may be the best choice for you.
A saltwater pool may even make your home more valuable when it comes time to sell. Lisa Sinopoli, a real estate agent in Vaughan, Onatario, says that many home buyers with young families are looking for saltwater pools as they are less harsh on their children’s skin and tend to be safer as less chemicals are needed to run your pool.
