Did u know the other name for salt? It is basically sodium chloride. Conversion of sodium chloride to salt is usually done by a certain salt generator where the salt is dissolved. This process of separating salt from chlorine is known as electrolysis. During this process, water is passed through the filter system.

The chlorine left is usually very natural. This means that it does not have the natural byproducts found with the other types of chlorine. It does not have a strong odor and also does not turn people's eyes red when they swim. In this article, we are going to discuss all the benefits of a salt water system and of course its disadvantages.

This chlorine is usually at its natural form. It does not have any irritating smell and does not have any effect to swimmers in the pool.
