Whether or not you realize it, salt is a staple of most health and beauty routines.  A quick look at any of the scrubs, creams, or lotions in your medicine cabinet will reveal that the majority of beauty products contain this natural wonder.  In fact, salt is one of the oldest health and beauty ingredients in the world. The first mention of the benefits of salt water date back to Chinese applications around 2700 years BC.  Hippocrates, the Greek “Father of Medicine”, was one of the first to encourage healers to soak their patients in salt water baths for health benefits.

While researching hot tubs, you’ve probably heard of the new salt water sanitation systems.  Many of our hot tubs have the option to include the state-of-the-art ACE™ Salt Water Sanitizing System.  This system uses a small amount of salt to automatically create a powerful oxidizer that both cleans your tub and produces a unique salt water experience.

Salt Water Benefits

Softer water

Salt water has a much softer and luxurious feel than fresh water.  Most of our owners liken it to a mineral bath.

Healthy skin

Salt water can act as a gentle exfoliant, helping to remove dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface to reveal smoother and healthier looking skin.  Salt can also help to clean pores, balance oil production, and decrease bacteria that cause acne.

Reduced chemical side-effects

As Californians, we know it is imperative to conserve our limited water resources. As previously mentioned, a salt water sanitation system requires you to drain and refill the spa water less often than a traditional care method.

Installing a salt water sanitation system in your tub reduces the amount of chemicals and chlorine you need to manually add. By reducing the amount of fillers and chemicals, you reduce the chance of unintended drying effects these chemicals can have on skin.  You’re also less likely to have the lingering smell of chlorine on your skin and hair after a soak in a salt water tub. This odor is typically caused by combined choramine and bromamine molecules that are created by traditional water care methods.

Less maintenance and a break for your energy bill

Instead of manually adding chlorine and bromamine to your tub, the Ace™ Salt Water Sanitizing System naturally produces it’s own gentle chlorine.  This means less time spent storing and pouring these chemicals.  A task that was once daily or weekly, is now simply a monthly chore. While typical water care methods require you to drain and refill your hot tub about every three to four months, a salt water sanitizing system can keep spa water clean for up to one year. Not only is this less work on your part, it means less refilling and reheating the water in your tub- giving you a break in your water and energy bills.

The Environmentally friendly solution

As Californians, we know it is imperative to conserve our limited water resources. As previously mentioned, a salt water sanitation system requires you to drain and refill the spa water less often than a traditional care method.

Not too salty

As the old adage suggests, everything is better in moderation and there is such thing as “too much of a good thing.”  Too much salt can have the reverse effects as intended. Luckily the ACE™ Salt Water Sanitizing System feature requires only a small amount of salt to work. This system uses a lower sodium concentration than the amount typically found in a salt water pool. In fact, it contains a lower salt level than humans are estimated to be able to taste.

A salt water sanitation system is a great choice for a hot tub owner looking to spend less time maintaining the water in their tub and more time relaxing in it.  The Ace™ Salt Water Sanitizing System is available as a feature on many of our hot tub models.
