Hooray! Our pool is now a Saltwater Pool!
Health Benefits of Salt Water Pools
Saltwater is really good for your skin
Swim in chlorine and it’s likely you’ll come out with dry skin that may itch. When you swim in saltwater, your skin will really benefit. It’s a natural exfoliator and moisturizer so you’ll leave the pool with silky smooth skin all over your body. It’s been proven to be particularly beneficial to anyone who suffers from skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and even acne.
It has extra stress relieving benefits
Being in the pool is instantly relaxing, but add in the benefits of saltwater and you’ll feel even more calm and tranquil. Saltwater helps our body to relax more quickly and naturally, leaving you feeling at peace after every dip.
It will soothe your joints and muscles
The bromide in the saltwater is perfect for alleviating aches and pains. If you suffer from a bad back from sitting at a desk all day, or your legs are sore from being on your feet for a long time, you’ll soon notice those pains ease away when you relax in a salt chlorinated water pool. If you’re recovering from an injury, spending time in the pool will certainly help you on the way to a speedy recovery.
So much better than the gym
The pool is more relaxing and more fun than the gym that’s for sure, and when you exercise in a pool, using the natural resistance of the water, you’re getting a great workout that’s low impact, so you’re not going to damage your joints as you could if you were on a treadmill at a gym. It’s also good for concentrating on your breathing while you exercise.
Free from side effects
Some people can experience side effects when they’re in a pool, especially if a little too much chlorine has been added. A salt chlorinated water pool has no such side effects such as irritated eyes or breathing difficulties.
