For those with saltwater pools, taking care of your pool salt cell is essential in maintaining a healthy and inviting swimming environment. Regular maintenance can help extend the life of your pool salt cell, allowing you to get the most out of your investment, but your maintenance routine is only as good as the cleaning products and procedures you use.
Use Swimming Pool Water Clarifier & Bio-Cleaner
Using Ahh!some Watercare’s swimming pool water clarifier & bio-cleaner product is an effective and easy way to keep your pool water clean. When you use Ahh!some’s products to clean your pool, you are simultaneously extending the life of your pool salt cell.
When you use the swimming pool water clarifier & bio-cleaner product to clean your pool regularly, you are effectively eliminating and preventing both organic and inorganic build-ups. These build-ups have the potential to harm your pool equipment if left unchecked, so it is important to use this product on a scheduled routine.
In addition, when your pool is staying clean, there is less of a need for sanitizer. In the case of a saltwater pool, this means that the pool salt cell won’t have to work as hard to produce sanitizer to clean your pool. When your pool salt cell can work at a lower intensity rate, it is likely to extend its life span.
Winterize with the Winter Pool Water Extender Clarifier
If you winterize your pool, consider adding Ahh!some Watercare’s winter pool water extender clarifier products to your pool closing routine. By adding one dose of this product during your pool closing, you can maintain water clarity and prevent build-ups that may be difficult to remove when you go to open your pool again in the spring.
In some cases, your pool salt cell may have to work harder during winter — or any other period of downtime — as other chemicals are not being added as often as they would have been during months of use.
By adding Ahh!some’s winter pool water extender clarifier to your pool prior to any pool closing, you can lengthen the lifespan of your pool salt cell by not overworking it during downtime.
Keep Your Filters Clean
Keeping your pool filters clean is an essential part of extending the life of your pool salt cell. Dirty filters can cause debris and other particles to build up, which can reduce the effectiveness of your salt cell. It’s important to check and clean your filters regularly, ensuring that they are free from dirt and debris.
Additionally, you may want to consider investing in a good pool filter cleaner such as Ahh!some’s hot tub, swim spa, and pool filter cleaner. This product helps dissolve build-up on your filter, allowing for the most effective filtration possible. By keeping your pool filters clean and properly maintained, you can be sure that your salt cell will last longer and provide superior performance.
Test Your Water for Calcium Hardness
Testing your water for calcium hardness is an important step in extending the life of your pool salt cell. Too much calcium in the water can cause scaling and deposits on the salt cell, reducing its performance over time. On the other hand, a deficiency of calcium can lead to corrosion and other forms of damage.
It’s important to test your pool water regularly to ensure that the calcium levels are within acceptable limits. Be sure to use quality test strips when checking your levels to ensure your pool water is healthy and your equipment isn’t being overworked or damaged.
