Hayward Salt Cell or Chlorine Free Pool?

 

Hayward salt cell

Are you looking for Hayward salt cell troubleshooting tips? Maybe your salt cell is broken well before its recommended replacement schedule. Unfortunately, this is an all TOO common occurrence in my experience. I have some cost breakdowns and analysis of some alternatives that hopefully provide a solution to the problem that these salt cells tend to break…A LOT.

The Cost of Replacing Salt Cells for Salt Water Pool Systems

In my research, the average expenditure for replacing salt cells in a salt water pool system is $299. This cost is expected for every five years or so, but a big problem with this expected cost is that salt cells have a tendency to break before they are scheduled to be replaced per 5 year period. This cost of around $299 every five years is on top of what you pay in the large amount of salt that has to be put in the pool to be converted to chlorine by the salt cell in order to keep the pool treated. Even if the salt cells lasted the full five years, there are less costly alternatives for pool conversion that have healthier results and less costly maintenance schedules.

The Cost of Converting to an Oxygen Pool from an Existing Salt Water or Chlorine Pool System

Based on the costly constant maintenance of a chlorine pool system, and the costly repairs involved in salt water systems, I looked at alternatives, and the results are surprising. On average you can convert one to an Oxygen Pool System for around $399. Not only are Oxygen Pools a breeze to maintain, but they are also the only alternative I have found that is a completely chlorine-free system. We have all heard or experienced first hand of the horrors that chlorine can unleash (from the noxious smells to the toxic and permanently damaging effects to eyes, hair, skin, clothing, and to the pool and its surroundings as well). Well, Oxygen Pools are the only alternative to these chlorine systems I have found on the market. Sure, some indoor pools can use bromine or non-chlorine shock treatments, but most of the time, chlorine is still added to these pools in addition to these systems because it is cheap and powerful compared to chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide (0-3 parts per million per gallon versus 30-50 parts per million per gallon of water). Ultimately, the more inexpensive option for pool systems turns out to also be the more healthy and enjoyable option in Oxygen Pool systems.

Conclusion

Whether you are Hayward salt cell troubleshooting or shopping for replacement salt cells, consider the more inexpensive and healthy alternative: go chlorine free with Oxygen Pools!
