Saltwater Inground Pools – Kingston Pools and Hot Tubs – Knapp’s Pools and Hot Tubs

Do you have an inground pool and want to convert it to a salt water pool??  You can certainly do that with a bit of tweaking.  You need to change your ladders/steps that are metal to a marine grade and then purchase your salt system.  The salt system itself requires electrical power as well as some plumbing hook ups.  Other than that it’s a pretty simple change out.

Salt water pools are still a chlorinated pool; they are simply chlorinated differently.  In salt pools it is still necessary to balance your water (pH, alkalinity and calcium) as well as use a good stain and scale as the cell that generates your chlorine will get gooped up with scale the same as your kettle and you will minimize the life expectancy of the cell.

It’s also important to know that the cell lasts approximately 500 hours and then requires a new cell to be installed.

Salt pools are lovely soft water and for an in ground pool I believe salt is a great way to go.  We carry the Pristiva Salt Program at Knapp’s Pools and Hot Tubs which is a great salt that has additives in it therefore you don’t have to purchase stain and scale products separately.  The salt is the purest available on the market and dissolves quickly therefore you don’t have to worry about it damaging your vinyl liner.  Give us a call and we can provide a cost estimate for changing out your existing pool.
