Saltwater Sanitation System FAQ

What are the benefits of a salt system?

If you are in the market for a spa, you may have heard about salt water spas. Salt generator systems are arguably the single biggest breakthrough in spa technology since the invention of energy efficient pumps. Choosing a spa with a salt system is likely to save you time, money, and a lot of elbow grease

How do salt systems work?

A salt system uses salt in the water to manufacture sanitizer. When the water passes through the salt cell, it uses electrolysis to convert the salt in the water into it’s base elements, sodium and chlorine (or bromine, depending on the specific type of system). Unlike standard a once-a-week treatments, the system will consistently add sanitizer up to twenty-four hours a day, which leads to constantly clear, fresh water.

What kind of maintenance will I have to do?

Very little, actually. Increasing your sanitizer level is just as easy as pushing a button. You still want to monitor the pH and keep your filters clean, but the salt itself will usually only have to be added when you refill your tub with water.

What will it feel like?

This is the best part of running a saltwater spa! You will immediately notice softer, silkier water — it’s almost like taking a mineral bath in a day spa. And because the sanitizer levels can be kept low and consistent, you won’t experience that harsh chlorine smell or feel itchy chemicals on your skin.
