Salt water pools in the long run cheaper
The own pool in the garden is a long cherished dream, but often fails to implement for many. Who want to splash this summer in the garden pool, should worry slowly and start planning.
Immediately after the budget question, the question is after a fresh or salt water pool. In Germany it is used that the outdoor and indoor swimming pool with fresh water pool are filled, which is offset to the disinfection with chlorine. Some people get through the used chlorine but skin and mucous membrane irritation. In addition, permanent loading of chlorine is not very cheap.
Fun in the garden pool
A good alternative is a salt water swimming pool. Here, the water in a natural way is kept free of bacteria. The cost is generally somewhat higher, the maintenance costs in the long term but cheaper. In addition to the classic pool accessories, the heart of a salt water pool is the so-called electrolysis device. In the pool shop there are several variants, depending on the size of the pool of 30 to 70 cubic meters. The plants are not very cheap, but also by the laity can be built up. It is important however to ensure that the materials used for the construction of the pool for salt water are suitable. Both the aperture and the pool wall, ladders, pumps and to and processes must consist of salt water resistant material.
Salt water pools have a much lower salt content, as known from the Mediterranean holiday. There is 2 to 3 percent salt concentration and can lead to dry skin and dry hair. In the pool, however, a much lower concentration of only 3000 there is a ppm, which corresponds to a rate of 0.3. The electrolysis device ensures that the salt NaCl is split into its components and so natural chlorine is produced. The chlorine levels in swimming pools with salt water are constant as in freshwater pools, which must be moved regularly with chlorine tablets. An unpleasant smell of chlorine in salt water pools does not arise despite the transformation.
