The Salt & Swim Above Ground Salt System is designed specifically for above ground pools. The Salt & Swim Above Ground Salt System automatically sanitizes your pool by converting the salt into free chlorine which kills the algae in the pool through a process called electrolysis. Because the chlorine will revert back to sodium chloride after killing the bacteria, these reactions will continuously recycle virtually eliminating the need to add sanitizing chemicals to your pool. The only time you may need to add more salt to the pool is when water is replenished due to backwashing, draining, or splashing (not evaporation).
The Salt & Swim Above Ground Salt System also has an integral time clock for control of the pool filtration pump. Since many above ground pools already have a single electrical outlet for the filter pump, the Salt & Swim Above Ground Salt System is designed with an outlet (timer controlled) for the filter pump to plug into. The savings on chlorine and electrical power alone (if the pump was previously running 24 hours), will have the Salt & Swim Above Ground Salt System paying for itself in just a few short years.
