Salt Chlorinator Benefits and Maintenance
Salt chlorine generators sanitize your pool and spa using salt rather than tabs or liquid chlorine. The effect is water that is odorless, feels softer, and the chlorine is far less harsh on your eyes, hair, etc. When the salt chlorinator indicates that the salt is low in the pool, you add a bag of salt by pouring it over the edge into any part of the pool and check to make sure the low salt light is off the next day. The salt can be purchased at just about any major home improvement store, weighs about 40 lbs., and costs about $8. You will go through 1 to 2 bags per 3 months on average, depending on the size of your pool and the temperature.
