Unlike traditional pools, saltwater pools don’t require regular additions of salt or chlorine, and they are gentler on the skin and eyes. They also have lower annual costs and are better for the environment. We’ve seen that our guests tend to be conscious of their health and the environment, so this was not only a business decision but one with our guests in mind.
