This is a swimming pool in The Crosby Estates of Rancho Santa Fe that always had algae. When we first looked at the pool, we found the water chemistry was not in proper balance. That is when we informed the customer that it needed to be drained due to high conditioner levels. Once the problem with the pool water was resolved, we then focussed on the usage of the pool and where it was located.
This home owner in The Crosby Estates uses the pool on a daily basis, and it requires a steady stream of chlorine. Also in this area of Rancho Santa Fe, there are a lot of open areas where algae spores will get picked up and deposited into the pool water. Pentair pool products have a new salt water chlorine generator called the iChlor that was the perfect fit for this application.
We informed the customer about everything we noticed about the swimming pool usage and surrounding areas and they agreed that installing a new salt water chlorine system seems like the best way to go for their specific needs.
Pentair iChlor Salt Water Chlorine Generator Explained
You will hear the basic reasoning for pool owners wanting to transition to a salt water pool. They want the silky soft skin when exiting the pool and they believe that it does not make the chemicals seem as harsh.
Bad water chemistry is the reason that you will smell funky or have a chemical smell not the type of chlorine being used. With a salt water pool, you could still have those common issues with red and burning eyes, itchy skin, etc… The water chemistry still needs to be maintained properly to protect your family and your investment.
