The Harmful Effects of a Salt Chlorine Generator Revealed:

Did you know Salt Chlorine Generators are a Device that Commercial & Residential Pools use to Create Chlorine that is bad for you? 

The Chlorine created by a Salt Chlorine Generator, when combined with Ammonia (bather-load) is a silent killer that is known to create Chloramines a (Toxic Carcinogen) that can cause serious health side effects including but (not limited to): dry hair, dry skin, skin irritation, birth defects, increased asthma and cancer risk.

Ever wonder what that smell is when you walk near a chlorinated or salt based sanitation pool? That’s not Chlorine it’s the toxic carcinogen called Chloramines, a byproduct of bater-load combining with Chlorine or Chlorine created by a Salt Chlorine Generator to disinfect the pool water.

If you have thought about or are using this type of Salt Chlorine Generator, consider the facts. This Chlorine Generator has high concentrations of corrosive salt that is added to the water. (Producing 40,000 times more chemicals). The probability for corrosion is high and a very serious problem; it can effect pool equipment, pumps, heaters, and surfaces. And guess what, the salt doesn’t even take away the need for other chemicals or the need for chlorine! The salt cell of the Chlorine Generator ionizes the salt just to produce more chlorine! Monitoring all chemical levels is very important; you would need to maintain a pH reading between 7.2 and 7.6.

Don’t even get me started on Caustic soda (NaOH) or sodium hydroxide; it is another byproduct of the chemical manufacturing process. This is the main ingredient in liquid Plumber, Drano, etc. that breaks down those nasty hair clogs in plumbing in drains and sinks, so just imagine what it does to you! These are the chemicals that breakdown and cause damage to skin cells, hair, swimsuits etc… now add that drying salt water in the mix with the toxic chlorine… that’s a big problem!
