Salt water pools are often compared to the common chlorinate pool. If you are looking forward to installing one commercially or for personal use, there are a few special considerations for salt water pools you should have in mind. Read below to understand what you should know before installing a salt water pool.


Salt water pools are easy to maintain compared to their alternatives. It features a non-stop production of sanitization chemicals that allows your pool system to clean your water automatically.

LandScape Around the Pool

Before constructing a salt water pool, you need to consider the type of water cleaning needs. Salt water pools tend to cause corrosion on unsealed tiles. The salt water may leave its white resides on the tiles and unsealed stones as well. The water may also corrode metals around the pool over time. 

Pool Designs

You can incorporate different designs in your salt water pool construction. Try a Baja step and beach entrance on both shallow areas of your salt water pool. You can also decide on a lap pool and an infinity-edge when planning on a salt water pool.
