Remember that not every pool that can accommodate adding this kind of item. Your pool must already have sufficient depths to prevent any accidents.  Always encourage safe usage of diving boards and slides.

Salt Water Chlorinator

Regular chlorine can be a harmful chemical.  When it is out of balance, it can irritate the skin and eyes, as well as cause breathing issues.  For asthma sufferers or people with sensitive skin, these things will cause issues even when the chlorine is balanced.  

Not to mention that you will need to buy chlorine frequently.  The cost to maintain a chlorinated pool can run anywhere from $300-$800 per year versus less than $100 a year to maintain a saltwater pool.

Saltwater chlorination doesn’t generate any harsh chemicals and automatically regulates your chlorine levels using a milder, better salt-based chlorine.  The chlorinator will add the salt (sodium chloride) to the pool.  Then, an electrolytic cell will transform the salt into chlorine and sanitize the water.
