If you’re thinking about installing a pool in your home or in your backyard, you may want to consider a salt water pool. First things first, salt water pools are not like the salt water you would find in the ocean. Think contact lens solution or tear drop, instead ocean salt water.  A salt water pool uses a salt chlorine generator, which means that instead of adding chlorine to your pool water, you add salt and then it is converted to chlorine. This can make your pool water have a softer and almost silkier feel to it.


So, other than your water having a softer feel to it, why should you consider a salt water pool? Salt water pools offer a wide variety of health benefits that range from healthier skin to decreased stress levels.

Great Workout Space

Along the lines of decreased stress, salt water pools can become a great workout space. Exercise is important when keeping your body and mind healthy, but for people who prefer to workout in the privacy of their own home, swimming or moving in a pool can give you the best of both worlds. Any type of movement in water is great for your body because of the resistance that water gives. Working out in a pool can also help you focus on your breathing, which can easily be forgotten during most types of workouts.


Good For Your Body

Swimming in a salt water pool is a lot better on your joints and muscles than a traditional chlorine pool. Salt water contains bromide, which is a mineral that helps relieve those everyday aches, pains, and soreness that can be felt in your joints and muscles. If you are recovering from an injury the bromide is also extremely beneficial.


Fewer Side Effects

If you’ve swam in a chlorine pool you know that there can be a lot of side effects. Your eyes can get red and irritated, your hair may turn green, and your skin might be dry and itchy. All of these effects are due to the chemicals that are in traditional chlorine pools, but with a salt water pool your body won’t be as irritated when you’re finished.
