It does not get very cold in South Florida during the winter but it is still too cool for most people to swim.

It is important to keep your pool enclosure locked so children do not fall into the pool and need help.

The federal gov has made a number of laws regarding  pool safety.  You can find them in the links below.

Swimming Pool Saltwater Vs Chlorine

If you are thinking about putting in a new pool this summer then you will need to do a lot of research. Don’t just go to the nearest pool shop. I found this short article about clorine vs salt water pool.

Saltwater Vs Chlorine: Which Swimming Pool Do You Need?

When someone decides that they want to install a swimming pool in their home, inground or above ground is not the only choice they have to make. They will also need to decide if they want a pool that uses saltwater or chlorine to stay clean. There are benefits to both, and the facts should be closely examined before making a choice.

One of the benefits of a saltwater pool is that it provides a more comfortable experience for the swimmers. Chlorine can be known to cause red eyes, itchy skin and even green hair for someone who swims in it often, but this does not occur with saltwater. Also, if someone happens to get some water in their mouth, the taste of saltwater is far more pleasant.

If cost is an issue, a chlorine pool is generally more affordable at the time of purchase than a saltwater pool. However, the cost of chemicals and maintenance can add up faster for a chlorine pool than a saltwater pool. Shoppers must decide whether they are more concerned with saving money at the time they purchase the pool or down the road.

Many people are concerned with choosing the pool that will be safest for the environment but the truth is that there is really no difference. Whether someone uses chlorine or saltwater, they are posing a risk for the plants around their pool. There is also a slight chance, with either system, that there could be a negative impact on the drinking water of the home.

Choosing between a saltwater and a freshwater pool is really a matter of personal preference. Shoppers must consider the expense that they are willing to take on when they purchase the pool, as well as their concern for the comfort of their swimmers. Whichever system someone chooses, they are sure to enjoy having a pool of their very own.

My name is John Blowers and I love to grill out with family and friends by the pool. I have used the same grill for over 6 years and the reason is because I use replacement Grill Parts to save money and headaches.
