Are saltwater pools a good idea? Yes! For many reasons! For example, the lower-chlorine saltwater is better for swimmers’ hair, skin, and eyes. Additionally, it also tends to be less harsh on pool toys and swimsuits. So, saltwater offers better longevity for your accessories.
It is also cheaper to maintain. To run a saltwater pool requires less than $100 a year in salt and chemicals if it is consistently maintained. While the chemical cost will be lower, the electricity cost of running a saltwater system will be slightly higher, approximately $36 to $48 per year more than a traditional pool pump system. Bur still you’ll come out ahead.
