Swimming Pools

The luxury of an in ground swimming pool is more affordable than ever.  Here at Dreamscape Homes and Remodeling we can help you decide which pool is best for you.

From time to time, we will post various articles on the different pools on the market today.  The following is an article from Healthyliving.AZcentral.com about the pros of a salt generator.

There are few activities more refreshing on a hot summer’s day than jumping into a pool. While the chlorine swimming pool is the industry standard, many acknowledge the saltwater pool as a viable option. Chlorine pools use costly chlorine powder or tablets for sanitation, while saltwater pools produce their own via a chlorine generator cell.

Water Quality

Saltwater pool advocates point to the water’s positive pH, which reduces the red eyes, pain and swelling that sometimes results from swimming in a too-heavily-chlorinated pool. Instead, saltwater chlorinators use — you guessed it — salt to produce its own sanitizing action; however, wise caretakers still monitor water balance. That means testing for water pH and chlorine levels regularly. Failure to address water balance problems results in algae blooms which force the chlorinator to work harder, burning the cell out sooner than necessary.

Maintenance Expenses

Pool expenses don’t begin and end with installation. Chlorine pools cost hundreds of dollars in chemicals every year, even if you do the open, close and weekly maintenance yourself. Saltwater pool owners avoid many of these expenses because the chlorinator makes its own chlorine from salt. Remember, however, that salt is extremely corrosive. Pool professionals increasingly report that saltwater systems damage ladders, concrete, decking and nearby furniture. While you may save money initially on chemicals, you may wind up spending more on equipment replacements.

Switching to a Saltwater Pool

Converting to a saltwater pool system requires installing a chlorine cell generator, work best performed by a professional. Professionals suggest comparing the amount of money you spend on chemicals over a three-year period to the cost of purchasing and installing a generator. Contact references supplied by established companies and ask how their surrounding surfaces and equipment are holding up under the constant exposure to saltwater and air. You may decide that adding chlorine tablets and a bit of shock every week beats out replacing furniture, toys and concrete.

Why Clean Pools Matter

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, pools cause recreational water illnesses such as diarrhea and hot tub rash in addition to symptoms such as stinging eyes and difficulty breathing. Avoid swimming in chlorine or saltwater pools if you recently contracted diarrhea, and shower before entering to stop the spread of germs. Both chlorine and saltwater pools are sanitary, provided that the owner takes the time to maintain the proper water balance.

Maybe it’s because old houses are starting to need the tender love and care that owners have been conveniently harboring for other matters, maybe it’s because the baby boomers are finally starting to settle down and make comfortable and livable niches for themselves, maybe it’s because peer pressure and shiny ads have finally gotten to everyone, all at once. No one is sure – all we know is that home remodeling is hot.
