Salt water pools are the new way to go. It is a process that pays off in the end physically and financially. Salt water believe it or not is a lot softer and more gentle on your skin, it is also a lot cheaper financially because salt produces chlorine so you do not need to go purchase more so you save money and time. The amount of salt in the pool is very little so it does not affect your skin very much actually a lot less than how regular chlorinated pools would. Your skin will remain smooth and soft not irritated or dried out like some other pools may leave you feeling.
