To enjoy a clear and crystal clear pool, it is very important to combine filtration and water treatment. If you are one of those swimmers who are uncomfortable or irritated by chlorine, salt electrolysis is an interesting alternative and, without a doubt, it is much more respectful with the environment. This technology also has the advantage that disinfection is done automatically. You just have to put salt, install and get into the water!
IS TREATMENT WITH SALT AS EFFECTIVE AS TRADITIONAL CHLORINE?
The answer is that yes, without a doubt.
Electrolysis transforms the salt present in the water into chlorine and sodium, which ensures a natural disinfection.
The water in the pool is slightly salty (between 3 and 5 grams of salt per liter, that is, 9 times less than seawater). Electrolysis, through the cell, the salt is transformed into gaseous chlorine, a powerful disinfectant that dissolves instantaneously in water. As with chemical chlorine, natural chlorine is a powerful oxidizing disinfectant, which is very effective in the elimination of microorganisms (bacteria, algae, etc.). It is spread in the pool through the impulse and water treatment nozzles.
Then, it becomes salt again when exposed to UV rays. The advantage of this system is that it is cyclic, so it is not necessary to add salt during the whole season (unless the water is renewed).
