Swimming in Saline: A Saltwater Pool is Much Better for the Skin

Swimming might be the least impacting, most complete exercise there is — and the most zenlike. But the idea of submerging oneself into chlorinated water is a turnoff for those with sensitive skin and $300 hair-color treatments.

A saltwater pool is a way of bringing the beach into the home. Saltwater has fewer toxins, it’s softer on the skin and it won’t cause red eyes or green hair. Converting your pool to saline involves a chlorine generator cell and a few bags of salt to produce electrolysis, which keeps the water sanitized by vaporizing algae and bacteria. The cells last from three to five years and can range in price from $600 to $1,800 for those willing to take the plunge.
