What Are the Pros and Cons of Saltwater Pools?

A saltwater pool is an alternative to a traditional chlorine pool. Although you don’t add chlorine tablets to a saltwater pool, it does still contain chlorine. It just has a smaller amount that’s generated through the filter system. Some people find this type of pool less harsh on their hair, eyes, and skin than a chlorinated pool.


Saltwater pool vs. chlorinated pool

A saltwater pool gets cleaned using a filtering system called a salt chlorine generator. The system uses electricity to turn salt into chlorine, which cleans the pool.

In a chlorinated pool, chlorine tablets or granules are physically added on a regular basis for the same purpose.

In both pool types, it’s important to still check the pH levels and alkalinity of the pool so it stays sanitized and the chemicals stay balanced.


The cost of a saltwater pool is initially more than a chlorine pool. That’s because a saltwater chlorination system can cost around $1,400 to $2,000, plus installation. But over time, it may save you money because you won’t have to regularly buy chlorine tablets.


A saltwater pool is easier to maintain than a traditional pool. But pool owners still need to check pH and alkalinity levels weekly.
