Salt Water Pool Service, Fresno, CA
Saltwater pools are an appealing water medium for pool owners, as the many benefits that it offers can be greater than that of traditional pool mediums, such as chlorine. While this is the case, it is important that you have a maintenance service in your pocket who can assist in maintaining this type of pool and who have experience in dealing with the unique challenges that this medium can cause. If you are looking for a service near you that offers saltwater pool maintenance, our number is available both above and below on this page, for your convenience.
What are saltwater pools?
Conventional pools utilize chemicals traditionally associated with swimming pools, such as chlorine, while saltwater pools use, well, salt. Salt is introduced to the pool through a salt cell, which assists in performing a few tasks that reap benefits over traditional pool types. The pump system, as well as the fixtures and piping within the pool, are all specially designed to handle this type of water and those looking to switch to saltwater pools will need to retrofit their existing pool to handle the requirements of a saltwater medium.
Why would you want a saltwater pool?
Saltwater pools offer owners many benefits, which include “softer” water and water that does not burn or smell, as is the case with traditional chlorine pools. Saltwater pools provide users with a more natural swimming experience (less burned eyes, better taste and smell, less damage to clothes, hair, and so on). Another advantage of saltwater pools is the fact that you are not storing harmful chlorine on your property, which makes this an incredibly appealing medium for pool owners who have young children on their property.
Algae in saltwater pools
The appeal of saltwater pools can quickly dissipate when you consider how much green algae can affect your pool. If the water pH levels in your pool are not perfectly balanced, the saltwater pool will turn green very quickly. If you wish to prevent the spread of unsightly green algae, it is best to ensure that you have a pool maintenance service (preferably Optima Pool Cleaning) on hand frequently to treat any issues before they become prevalent and conduct standard weekly pool maintenance. Doing this will ensure that you reap the benefits of having a saltwater pool, while also keeping the drawbacks of this kind of pool at bay!
