Chlorine vs. saltwater pool: Which is best for you?
What's the difference between chlorine and saltwater pools? We weigh the pros and cons of each
Backyard pool with umbrella and plants

Both chlorine and saltwater pools are great choices for homeowners looking to add a refreshing and relaxing space to their backyard. However, choosing between chlorine vs. saltwater pools isn’t easy. Both saltwater and chlorinated pools offer unique advantages and challenges regarding maintenance, cost, and care. So, today, we’re discussing the differences between chlorine and saltwater pools and weighing the pros and cons of each to help you decide what is best for you.
What to expect with a chlorine pool
A chlorine pool is an affordable option for homeowners who require lower upfront costs. These pools are often more energy efficient and are a popular choice for many people who are first-time pool owners. Chlorine pools require chlorine tablets, powders, or liquids, which must be added to the water and tested regularly to ensure the pool is safe to swim in. This means that chlorine pools can be a more time-intensive option to care for, as you will need to perform routine chlorine checks.

The chemicals in chlorinated pools help kill off harmful microorganisms and bacteria that attempt to grow in the pool. Using chlorine floating dispensers, adding chlorine to the skimmer basket, or using an automatic chlorinator are some of the methods you can use to add chlorine to your pool.
