Salt Water Chlorinators/SWG's

OK Guys,

Whats your feeling on the popularity of SWG's in your neck of the woods? We have just started a pool company in Cyprus, and they mostly haven't even heard of them. We are importing Watermaids from Australia and they are selling very well.

So far, there have been 13 views of my last posting and no polls. Has no-one any views on SWG's?

Sorry, never heard of them.
I didn't want to vote on something I knew nothing about.

Take a look at watermaid(dot)com
There are also many American SWG's and I won't try to sell you one over another.

I own one also, works like a dream. Saves money and kids don't get that itchy and redness in the eyes, nor do they smell like chlorine. I'm in Vancouver BC Canada.

Salt Water Chlorinators

Postby BraddockPools » Sun 17 Jul, 2005 23:17

I have 12-15 pools that are on my weekly route that have salt systems. They are both good systems. I am a dealer and warranty station for Chlor-matic and Aqua-pure. ( I hate Zodiac's system, terrible service and an inferior product.) The salt water systems will save you money on chemicals. Untill it breaks down. Parts are outrageously high and you will have to work on it between 3 and 4 years after you install it.

The red and ichy eyes and chlorine smell, mentioned above, is from improper chemical balance. The itchy eyes is most likely a Ph problem that you can still have with salt water pools. The Ph of a human's eye is 7.5 so anything that varies to much either way will irritate your eyes. The chlorine smell is from over chlorinating your pool. If you keep your chemicals right a salt system is no advantage in my opinion.

Re: .the cause of chlorine smell

[The cause of chlorine smell in a pool is from the chlorimines. These are caused by incomplete oxidization of contaminants in the pool water. This creates nitrates which give the chlorine smell. It is a mistaken belief that this is caused by too much chlorine. If pool water is properly balanced and the appropriate levels of chlorine(or slightly higher) are maintained to keep orp levels within parameters there shouldn't be any chlorine smell ]

we have had a salt pool for several years - great to swim in but have encountered repeated staining of the marbelite surface - has anyone else had this problem?
