Salt Water Pool Maintenance
Many swimming pools throughout Phoenix are salt water swimming pools. Salt water swimming pools use a salt water pool system that includes a saltwater chlorinator. These salt water pool systems can be very beneficial in the maintenance of your swimming pool, but they need to be properly maintained.
The salt water systems are by no means maintenance free (despite what your Realtor told you) and require inspection several times throughout the year, not just in the summer months. The Phoenix, Arizona metro area has very "hard water", with lots of mineral deposits in the water. These mineral deposits will build up in your salt cell, and need to be cleaned off regularly or your salt cell will be unable to do it's job.
In addition to that, most salt cells are unable to produce chlorine when the water temperature is too hot or too cold. Some brands of salt cells will automatically shut off when the water temperature is too low. Others need to be manually shut off during the winter time to extend the life of the cell.
But even in the winter month's, your pool's water chemistry is still important and needs to be maintained year round. Call Blue Cactus Pool Service LLC for a complete inspection of your salt system, pool equipment, pool filter, and water chemistry to ensure your swimming pool is ready for spring.
