Lawrenceville, GA (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
Over 1.3 million pool owners across the country agree that saltwater pools are one of the hottest new trends in backyard living. In fact, saltwater makes up 62% of new pool builds and 15% of the current pool market, according to 2013 research conducted for BioGuard, one of the nation’s premier suppliers of pool and spa products. To meet the needs of this growing market, BioGuard has introduced SaltScapes™, a "salt-specific" product line featuring everything pool owners need to keep their saltwater sparkling and to protect their chlorine generator equipment and pool surfaces.
"Saltwater pools have gained popularity as a simpler and gentler approach to pool care," says Joseph DeFuria, BioGuard brand manager. "Many pool owners feel they are less harsh on the skin and eyes, making backyard swim time even more fun for the whole family."
There are also some popular misconceptions about this newest trend. Both traditional chlorine pools and saltwater pools use chlorine to sanitize the water. The difference is, saltwater pools use a chlorine generator to produce chlorine from salt. Also, while many saltwater enthusiasts enjoy the ease of caring for their pool, no pool type is maintenance-free. Saltwater pools require additional care to avoid corrosion and to ensure chemical levels are in balance.
Available exclusively from BioGuard dealers nationwide, SaltScapes is the professional’s choice to address the challenges of salt cell generators and the impact of saline chlorination on water conditions. The line includes Scale Defender, Algae Remover, pH Reducer, SunShield® Stabilizer, Chlorine-Free Shock Oxidizer, Cell Cleaner and Test Strips.
BioGuard products are designed for easy pool maintenance, and BioGuard dealers are the local experts who help consumers identify what they need and understand how to use it. Pool owners can bring in a sample of pool water to their local dealer for complimentary testing and a prescription for sparkling water.
