The Six Truths of Salt Pool Care
SALT POOL TRUTH 2: The process a cell uses to convert saltwater into chlorine contributes to higher water pH everytime a cell runs.
SALT POOL TRUTH 3: The environment within a cell can cause chalky white calcium-scale deposits to form on a cell’s wall over time, decreasing the chlorine output.
SALT POOL TRUTH 4: Chlorine is effective at killing bacteria and algae, but creates unpleasant by-products when it reacts with contaminants like sweat, sunscreen, or fertilizer.
SALT POOL TRUTH 5: Saltwater pools need to have water balance levels tested on a regular basis just like traditional chlorine pools.
SALT POOL TRUTH 6: The amount of salt in a pool and the amount of chlorine being produced are independent of each other. Adding more salt to the water (above what is recommended in the owner’s manual) does not improve efficiency or increase the generation of chlorine.
BioGuard® SaltScapesTM Saltwater Pool Care System
Saltwater pools are favored for their simpler and gentler approach to pool care, but they do have some unique maintenance needs when compared to traditional chlorine pools. Galati Pools & Spas offers the SaltScapes Saltwater Pool Care System which, was designed specifically for saltwater pools and provides everything you will need to keep your saltwater pool sparkling and protect your equipment and pool surfaces.
SaltScapes pH Reducer
The process your cell generator uses to convert saltwater into chlorine contributes to higher water pH every time your cell runs. SaltScapes pH Reducer protects pool surfaces and equipment by lowering pH to the ideal range and is a safer option to store and handle than liquid muriatic acid.
SaltScapes Chlorine-Free Shock Oxidizer
SaltScapes Chlorine-Free Shock Oxidizer Chlorine is effective at killing bacteria and algae, but creates unpleasant by-products when it reacts with contaminants like sweat, sunscreen or fertilizer. SaltScapes Chlorine-Free Shock Oxidizer is a better alternative than boosting chlorine because it eliminates these contaminants without creating unwanted effects (such as a “stinky chlorine smell”) for clear, fresh odor-free water you’ll love.
SaltScapes Scale Defender
The environment within your salt cell can cause chalky white calcium-scale deposits to form on a cell’s walls over time, decreasing the chlorine output. SaltScapes Scale Defender binds to calcium-based scale crystals to prevent them from sticking together and clumping on surfaces. This highly effective product ensures a clean, efficient cell.
SaltScapes Cell Cleaner
The environment within your cell can cause chalky white calcium-scale deposits to form on your cell’s walls over time, decreasing the chlorine output. SaltScapes Cell Cleaner is highly effective at removing most types of scale and is strong enough to remove built-up scale in 15-30 minutes. All while being safer and easier to handle than acid cell cleaners.
SaltScapes SunShield® Stabilizer
Your salt cell generates unstabilized chlorine, which means it diminishes rapidly when exposed to UV rays. SaltScapes SunShield® Stabilizer protects generated chlorine from sunlight, allowing it to last longer and be less demanding upon your system.
SaltScapes Algae Remover
SaltScapes Algae Remover, is a highly effective, patented, non-staining pool algicide. This product is especially recommended for killing green, blue-green (frequently called black or spot algae) and mustard algae growths. Formulated for use in saltwater swimming pools of all surface and filter types with results in 24 hours or less.
