Increasing numbers of people who are having a swimming pool put in, are opting for salt electrolysis to disinfect their swimming pool water. With good reason. The process of electrolysis converts swimming pool salt into chlorine, but without the unpleasant smell or stinging eyes. With clean, fresh water as a result. Careful though: Not every type of salt is suited for disinfecting swimming pools. So do not buy just any type of salt.
