As you probably know, salt is very corrosive and will eat unprotected metal quite quickly. Just like northern cars become rust buckets from the salt on the roads, swimming pools can suffer that same fate if not properly protected. What sets salt friendly swimming pools apart from the others is the materials the pool is constructed from. And by changing the make up of the pool’s construction you can prevent corrosion and extend pool life considerably.
You probably have heard the term resin when pool shopping. Resin is a form of plastics or polymer that’s great for making pool parts from because it does not rust. By using resin in the pool’s construction you can add many years to the life of a swimming pool and enable it you use saltwater as a sanitizer. Not all resin pools are created equal and certain pool models fair much better in tough environments like Florida. Be sure to ask a local dealer or pool installer for advice on what models to purchase.
