Take the worry, stress, and work out of chemically treating your pool with a pool sanitization system

Measuring, mixing, and adding chemicals to your pool can quickly become a chore, especially when you’d rather be swimming and having fun in the water. But because your pool still needs to be chemically treated to keep the water clean and enjoyable, it’s still a task that needs to be done.

Take the worry, stress, and work out of chemically treating your pool with a pool sanitization system from Lakeshore Pools & Hot Tubs.

What is the advantage of a having a salt pool vs using traditional chlorine?

Traditional pool chlorine pucks or powder is manufactured at a facility so it can be stored and added to your pool. A salt system is (also referred to as a chlorine generator) manufactures chlorine on demand and introduces that chlorine directly into the pool without the need to store it. This means there is no more transporting, handling or even purchasing required for routine chlorine because salt pools have the ability to produce virtually all the chlorine they need. Say goodbye to heavy lifting or staining of clothes, and say hello to water that feels soft and acts like a natural conditioner for your skin. Maintaining and enjoying your pool is easier than ever with a Hayward Salt System.

Salt Chlorine Generator

We carry Hayward salt chlorine generators because of their proven track record for reliability, and the time savings they bring by using salt chlorine over traditional chlorine.

The Aqua Rite Salt System by Hayward is the #1 Selling Automatic Chlorinator in North America for the last 2 decades, eliminates the worries and hassle of pool ownership and dramatically enhances the swimming experience.

Using this salt chlorine generator is easy!

The salt chlorinator system works in tandem with salt you add to the pool water. Its internal salt cell, plumbed inline with the return pipe, contains coated metal blades that use electrolysis to split the salt water flowing through it into hydrogen and hypochlorous acid. The hypochlorous acid replaces traditional chlorine sanitizer.

When you open your pool in the spring, you will generally need to add 3 bags of salt to the pool water, as the existing water will be diluted by fresh water from your hose. Because salt does not evaporate and remains in your pool, only minor salt adjustments will be needed during the season. These adjustments will be due to water dilution from heavy rains, backwashing your filter, or loss of water from pool use and splashing.

The unit contains a display that alerts you to any issues with salt levels or chlorine production. Please note that salt systems will not generate chlorine until the water is approximately 70°F and the salt is at the appropriate level. In the spring, you may need to add traditional chlorine to colder water to keep it sanitized and clear until your water is heated.

When using the unit, be sure to manage the pH level in your water to protect your pool liner and equipment. Also, be sure to check if discharging salt water into your local sewer system is allowed in your municipality. If your city has banned saltwater discharge, please see automatic pool chlorinators below.

The salt cells come with a 1 – 5 year warranty, depending on the model. The savings that you receive from a salt system from not having to purchase pool chlorine offsets the cost of replacing the salt cell.

Using salt provides a gentler, more natural form of pool sanitization without the smell or potentially irritating effects of chlorine. The entire process is automated for you as well, so no more adding, handling, or storing chlorine jugs or pucks.
