1. Little to no chlorine smell

Saltwater pools use little to no chlorine or chemicals to sanitise the waters. The salt in the water actually acts as a sanitising agent for the pool. So rest assured, you'll be coming out of the waters smelling fresh and chlorine free.

2. Better for your everything!

Because no strong chemicals are used to sanitise saltwater pools, the water isn't as harsh as a regular swimming pool is. Therefore, it doesn't damage your skin, eyes, hair, or clothes. No red eyes or skin rashes here!

3. Feels as soft as silk

Salt is normally used as a water softener. Therefore, the water in saltwater pools have a much smoother, silkier, and softer feel on your skin. Even after swimming for a long time, your skin won't feel as dry when you come out of the water.
