The Pros and Cons of a Saltwater Hot Tub

Sunrise Premiere Pool Builders Saltwater Hot Tub

There are many benefits to a saltwater hot tub, but there are a couple disadvantages to take into account before you make your final decision.

There is really no denying that the warm weather is going to come quicker than you think — and that means more time spent outdoors. In fact, homeowners tend to enjoy summer days outside poolside — but what about a hot tub for your humble abode? The reality is that a hot tub can transform your overall outdoor living area. Ultimately, any hot tub can be turned into a saltwater hot tub — it really comes down to the type of water that is filtered through it. Here are the key things to keep in mind if you are considering investing in a saltwater hot tub for the family to enjoy for many years to come.

Gentle Water For Eyes And Skin

For the most part, homeowners who have young children might be very hesitant to allow them to get in a regular hot tub. In fact, hot tubs are usually relegated to older adults. The reality is, saltwater can be beneficial for people of all ages (with proper supervision, of course) particularly for those who have sensitive skin. Ultimately, if you or a family member has harsh skin reactions to the chemicals found in chlorine and other naturally occurring substances in typical pool water, saltwater might be what you need — particularly for your hot tub — as an option for those individuals who might not be able to handle the pool water. 

Avoid Any Unpleasant Smell

When it comes to saltwater hot tubs, you can easily avoid all the unpleasant odors associated with chlorinated water. In fact, saltwater hot tubs tend to be incredibly great at alleviating those annoying smells people typically associate with either a swimming pool or hot tub overall. The reality is that there is nothing better than adding a saltwater hot tub to your backyard. Ultimately, trying something new makes having a saltwater hot tub worthwhile. 

What’s The Catch?

While there are so many amazing benefits associated with a saltwater hot tub, there is something that homeowners should be aware of binge installing on in their home. In fact, while saltwater hot tubs are wonderful, it will require a certain level of maintenance and upkeep. The reality is, it’ll cost a pretty penny to not only install a saltwater hot tub but to maintain it as well — when compared to chlorinated ones. But the benefits might just outweigh the cons.
