Swimming pools are great for fun and relaxation – but to get the most out of them, they need to be maintained with proper frequency. Every pool needs to be chlorinated to keep it clean from bacteria and algae. However, continually refueling the pool with chlorine can be a chore, and the tablets and liquids can get expensive. Luckily, there is a better solution – the swimming pool chlorine generator.
Chlorine generators use electric cells to break salt down into chlorine with a byproduct of sodium. The water is constantly pumped through the generator, so that it can perform this process for the entire pool. Over time, the chlorine will eventually bind with the sodium, forming salt. But this salt can in turn be broken down again to release more chlorine, ensuring a continual supply.
All that is needed is to plug the chlorine generator in, and it will keep your pool properly chlorinated for a long time. Maintenance mostly consists of keeping the cells free of mineral deposits, and adding small amounts of salt now and then. This stands in stark contrast to usual methods of adding chlorine by dumping in liquids or tablets. Manually adding chlorine means handling a chemical that is unhealthy in its pure form. In addition, it can be a hassle to keep adding more chlorine for as long as the pool stays open. Besides, the expense can add up over the years. Not to mention that to manually adding in pool chemicals can get extremely tiring and frustrating.
While chlorine generators typically cost a few hundred dollars, this investment will pay off very well, as you will keep your pool chlorinated for years with one purchase. Plus when you factor in the many hours of labor you take out of the equation with this device, the amount of money you pay upfront immediately seems like the bargain it really is. An inground pool cleaner system also falls in line with the aforementioned criteria.
