Chlorine is the best way to sanitize water. The easiest and safest way is to generate your own chlorine at a constant low level. Salt is a natural element found in the earth, in our body and in our homes. It is used to season and preserve our food, rinse out contact lenses, and soften our 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 swimming pool you have your very own “chlorine generator.”
A wonderful thing happens to the salt after it is turned into chlorine and does the work of purifying the water – it turns back into salt and the process begins all over again. Since the salt is at a much lower level than contact lens solutions, there is no “salty” taste to the water and no more odors from harsh chlorine products. No more red eyes, green hair, itchy skin, or faded swim wear!
