  • Q: Is salt better than chlorine?
  • A: The great myth about salt is that it is not a chlorine pool and doesn't require regular maintenance. Salt pools generate chlorine, and the generated chlorine is the same amount as tablets. They also require the owner to maintain the shock to remove chloromines. Ph, Alkalinity and Calcium all need to be checked regularly along with the chlorine.
