It is actually quite simple. Salt is added to water that passes through an electrolytic process. The result the disinfectant; hypochlorite is produced. Even simpler expressed: Salt + water + electricity (DC) = Hypochlorite. Which gives clean pool water. Risk free!
We clean pool water with salt because it is safe. The personnel of the pool facilities in the municipality are relived of risks that transportation of pure chlorine through town areas means. The pool attendants does not need to take into consideration storage and handling of packages and containers labeled as dangerous and corrosive material. With salt he or she can safely manage the cleaning process.
The salt technology is good for several reasons, risk free transportation is one of them
In the eventuality of an accident it is far more better that the truck is filled with salt than chlorine. The effects of transporting these two chemicals in an accident are very large. Transportation safety is therefore one of the reasons we prefer using salt when cleaning pools.
Clean more pools with the salt technology
Salt or liquid chlorine. The result is the same: Clean water. However, the WTS salt technology is definitively more safe and we think that is it more in line with todays environmental considerations. Salt and water passes through an electrolytic process which produces hypochlorite, the active compound that cleans the water.
Considerations for the pool attendant
One strong reason for using our WTS salt technology when pool water is to be cleaned are considerations for the pool attendants. It is simply put safer to store and the attendants only handles salt tablets in a size comparable to ordinary dishwasher detergent tablets. There is no need for safety gloves, safety goggles or dedicated rooms for chlorine storage. Seen from a working environment perspective the salt technology is without competition. The choice should be simple.
