Saltwater Pool Equipment in Orlando

Equipment for Saltwater Pools in Central & Southwest Florida

Saltwater pools have gained popularity among homeowners in Orlando due to their numerous benefits and easier maintenance compared to traditional chlorinated pools. Unlike their chlorinated counterparts, saltwater pools utilize electrolysis to sanitize the water, eliminating the need for extensive chemical balancing. This process involves a saltwater generator that transforms salt into chlorine, providing a more natural and gentle method of sanitation. With their myriad advantages and simplified upkeep, saltwater pools have become a preferred choice for many homeowners in Orlando.

Homeowners often prefer saltwater pools for their softer, gentler water that is less harsh on the skin and eyes. The lessened usage of chemical sanitizers reduces the risk of skin irritation and allergies, making saltwater pools a great choice for those with sensitive skin or chlorine intolerance. Additionally, these pools require less maintenance, making them a cost-effective solution in the long run.

When it comes to saltwater pool equipment in Orlando, a variety of options are available to cater to every need. From saltwater generators and pool pumps to heaters and automatic pool cleaners, each piece of equipment plays a crucial role in maintaining the efficiency and cleanliness of your saltwater pool. Choosing the right equipment for your pool can make a significant difference in its performance and longevity, ensuring that you enjoy a safe and refreshing swim every time.

The Benefits of a Saltwater Pool

Saltwater pools are increasingly popular among Orlando homeowners due to their numerous advantages. One significant benefit is the reduction in harmful chemicals, as the need for frequent chlorine additions is eliminated. This minimizes exposure to harsh chemicals, reducing skin irritation and respiratory issues.

Saltwater pools provide a more soothing aquatic environment than traditional chlorinated pools, reducing eye redness and irritation while promoting softer, smoother skin. This creates a delightful swimming experience, particularly for individuals with delicate skin.

Furthermore, the ongoing maintenance of a saltwater pool can be more cost-effective in the long run. Although the initial investment may be higher, the reduced need for chemical sanitizers can lead to significant cost savings over time.

It is also worth noting that saltwater pools are environmentally friendly as they eliminate the need for chlorine manufacturing, transportation, and storage. By choosing a saltwater pool, you make a healthier choice not only for yourself and your family but also for the environment.

Converting to a Saltwater Pool: Essential Equipment

The process of converting your traditional chlorinated pool into a saltwater pool requires the right equipment.

We carry everything you need for a smooth transition, including:

  • Saltwater chlorinator: Also known as a saltwater generator, it uses electrolysis to convert salt into chlorine, maintaining optimal sanitization levels in your pool.
  • Salt cells: Salt cells are a vital component of the saltwater chlorinator. They facilitate the electrolysis process, breaking down the salt into its constituent parts to produce the sanitizing agents.
  • Salt: Regular table salt (sodium chloride) is all you need. It's essential to ensure that the salt is pure and free from any additives.
  • Saltwater pool test kit: A saltwater test kit is essential to monitor and maintain the correct salt and chlorine levels in your pool.
  • Replacement parts for your existing pool equipment: Depending on the current condition of your pool equipment, you may need to make some updates. For example, you might need to upgrade your pool pump, filter, or pool heater to models designed to withstand saltwater. 

At Fiji Pools, we ensure a seamless transition from a traditional chlorinated pool to a more health-friendly, low-maintenance saltwater pool. Contact us at (888) 303-5565 today to get started with your pool conversion.

Tips for Maintaining a Saltwater Pool

Maintaining a saltwater pool is relatively straightforward and requires less effort compared to traditional chlorinated pools. 

Here at Fiji Pools, we recommend the following steps to ensure your saltwater pool remains clean, clear, and enjoyable: 

  • Check salt levels regularly: Salt levels in your pool should ideally be within 2700 to 3400 ppm. Use a reliable saltwater pool test kit to monitor these levels regularly. Too little salt may hinder the production of chlorine, while too much salt may lead to damage in your pool equipment. 
  • Inspect the salt chlorinator: Regular inspection of the salt cell in your chlorinator is crucial to protect it from calcium scale buildup, which can hamper its efficiency. When needed, clean the salt cell with a mild acid solution as per the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Monitor the pH Levels: Maintaining the correct pH balance in your pool is just as important in a saltwater system as it is in a traditional pool. Aim for a pH level between 7.2 and 7.8 to prevent scaling and ensure optimal chlorine effectiveness.
  • Maintain the tight eater level: The water level in your pool should be halfway up the opening of your pool skimmer. A very high or low water level can put a strain on your pool pump and affect the efficiency of your pool filter.
  • Regularly brush and vacuum your pool: Algae and residue can still build up in a saltwater pool. Brush the pool walls and floor weekly, and vacuum when necessary to keep the water clear and clean.

Even though saltwater pools require less hands-on maintenance, they still need ongoing care. For professional help, count on Fiji Pools.
