The addition of certain chemicals is imperative when it comes to preventing bacterial growth and water quality issues, but traditional chemicals can wreak havoc with your family's hair, eyes and skin. Even slightly excessive levels of chlorine or other chemicals can have detrimental effects, which is why it's so important to understand the intricacies of chemical safety in terms of swimming pool water. If you're looking for a gentler alternative to traditional pool chemicals, a salt-chlorine generator may be the perfect solution.

Children and pets can access chemical stores with awful consequences, which is where a salt chlorine generator shines. Not only does this system have less of an impact on your hair, skin and eyes, but it also eliminates the need to store caustic chemicals on your property.
