Just as we do for freshwater pools, we can install, repair, clean, and maintain salt water pools.

Some benefits of salt water systems would include:

- Soft Water Feel

Salt Water Pool vs. Sea Saltwater
It’s important to note that a salt water pool is not a seawater pool. Seawater pools are not very common and are difficult to keep up due to the high concentration of salt and the harshness of the water, along with other complex requirements. So, when someone says they have a “saltwater pool,” they’re most likely referring to the type of pool that has a salt water chlorinator. Salt water pools are becoming more common and with good reason. They are no more difficult to create and maintain than freshwater pools. In addition, pool water with a salt chlorine generator—versus sea salt pool water—doesn’t leave a salty taste in your mouth like ocean water, and it also manufactures its own natural chlorine.
How Does A Salt System Work?
When one of our customers wants to turn their fresh water pool into a salt pool, Oasis Pool Maintenance adds the correct amount of salt that is required for their pool size, while concurrently connecting a salt chlorine generator to their pool system. When the system is fully converted, there is no need to add store-bought chlorine to the water because the salt water generator creates chlorine indefinitely through electrolysis. As the pool water flows into the salt system, it goes through an electrolysis process. Then, it flows back out into the pool water as hydrogen and hypochlorous acid (chlorine), which replaces the need for store-bought chlorine.
Chlorine Generator vs. Store-Bought Chlorine
One of the reasons that salt water pools are attractive is because the chlorine that is manufactured by the salt chlorine generator does not have a strong chlorine smell like store-bought chlorine. It feels soft on the swimmers’ skin and isn’t harsh on bathing suits, pool equipment, and other pool items.
Keeping a Salt Water Pool Clean
The easiest way to keep a salt pool clean is to let the experts at Oasis Pool Maintenance do it for you. Our skilled pool technicians will keep your new salt chlorine generator free of white mineral deposits that can form on the inside of the unit. Keeping it clean will ensure that it will continue to work at full capacity. It will typically need to be cleaned a few times per year. As your pool is used throughout the season, the salt content may need to be adjusted by our pool experts.
