Salt water pool maintenance is not as expensive and time consuming as traditional swimming pools yet chlorine generators do require periodic cleaning to remove scale deposits that form.

Salt Water Pool Maintenance

One of the biggest advantages that salt water pool systems have over traditional swimming pools is that they require significantly less maintenance. This is because salt water systems have chlorine generators which produce chlorine from the salt water meaning you don't need to keep adding chlorine yourself.

These chlorine generators do require periodic cleaning to remove scale deposits that form on the chlorinator cell's electrodes during normal operation. Scale occurs from the calcium and magnesium levels that are in the pool water or that are added via powdered chlorine, calcium chloride additions, or leaching from pebble or marble sheen surfaces. So some salt water pool maintenance is needed. (Taken from

Salt Water Pool Maintenance Tips

  • Keep the proper level of salt and stabilizer in the pool - If the salt level drops too low, the system will not be able to produce chlorine. Most systems have an indicator to show low salt levels.
  • Make sure the pool is running long enough to produce adequate chlorine - Pool timers should be set to run during the hottest daylight hours, this is when your chlorine usage is highest. The system will only produce chlorine while the pump is running so it's important to run the pool long enough.
  • Shocking a Pool (Superchlorination) - If the chlorine reading gets too low then it is important to superchlorinate the pool in order to quickly raise up the chlorine level to avoid unsanitary water.
