Is A Saltwater Hot Tub Or All-Weather Pool Right For You?

by | Jun 21, 2023

When it comes to creating an oasis of relaxation and enjoyment in your backyard, two popular options that come to mind are saltwater hot tubs and all-weather pools. While traditional hot tubs and pools commonly rely on chlorine for water sanitization, an increasingly popular and alternative option is the use of a saltwater system. This is where Arctic Spas® innovative technologies like Spa Boy® and Onzen™ come into play.

At Arctic Spas®, we recognize the growing demand for alternative sanitization methods, and our proprietary salt water system, Onzen™, produces sanitizer from Dead Sea salts through the process of electrolysis.  The use of the Onzen™ Salt Water system can significantly reduce the effort required to maintain clear and safe spa water. Paired with Spa Boy® Automated Salt Water Care which continuously monitors water chemistry, Arctic Spas® provides a seamless integration of saltwater systems into our hot tubs.


Saltwater Hot Tubs: Embrace the Gentle Touch

One of the significant advantages of saltwater hot tubs and all-weather pools is their gentle effect on the skin. Instead of using harsh chemicals to create chlorinated water, saltwater care systems utilize a saltwater chlorination system. The resulting water is milder, leaving your skin feeling softer and less prone to dryness or irritation. This makes saltwater spas an excellent choice for individuals with sensitive skin or allergies to traditional chlorine-based systems. Skin and Eye-Friendly, the lower chlorine levels in saltwater hot tubs are milder reducing the risk of irritation and dryness.

By combining ozone generation, saltwater systems, ionization, and enhanced filtration, Arctic Spas® Onzen™ system promotes softer water by reducing the reliance on harsh chemicals and providing a more natural and gentle bathing environment. The result is water that feels smoother and more comfortable on the skin, enhancing the overall hot tub experience.

Reduced Maintenance

Maintaining pool or hot tub water can be a time-consuming task. However, saltwater hot tubs simplify the maintenance process. The saltwater chlorination system generates chlorine naturally, reducing the need for frequent manual chemical additions.

Spa Boy® automated water care system is designed to reduce hot tub maintenance by automating and simplifying various aspects of water care. By streamlining hot tub maintenance tasks, the Spa Boy® minimizes the time and effort needed to upkeep the hot tub. As a result, users can devote more of their valuable time to fully immersing themselves in the enjoyment of their hot tub, rather than being preoccupied with water care and upkeep responsibilities.

With proper maintenance and monitoring of the water balance, saltwater requires less attention and allows you to spend more time enjoying the therapeutic benefits of soaking in warm, soothing water.


Enhanced Water Quality

Saltwater hot tubs and all-weather pools offer excellent water quality. The saltwater chlorination system helps keep the water clean, clear, and free from bacteria and algae. Additionally, the lower chlorine levels in saltwater hot tubs minimize the distinctive chlorine smell often associated with traditional hot tubs, creating a more pleasant and enjoyable soaking experience.


Cost Efficiency

While the initial investment for a saltwater hot tub may be slightly higher, the long-term cost efficiency can make it a worthwhile investment. Saltwater systems require fewer additional chemicals and sanitizers, saving you money on ongoing maintenance expenses. Moreover, the extended lifespan of components and reduced wear and tear on equipment can contribute to long-term cost savings.


Eco-Friendly Option

If environmental sustainability is a priority for you, a saltwater spa is a greener choice. The saltwater chlorination system produces chlorine naturally from salt, reducing the need for chemical additives that can be harmful to the environment. By opting for a saltwater hot tub or all-weather pool, you can enjoy the relaxation while minimizing your ecological footprint.
