Saltwater Pool Design

Saltwater swimming pools are growing more and more in popularity since they use less chlorine and require less sanitation work than traditional pool-based designs. Each one of our Compass Pools can be installed as a saltwater pool, as we can build it using an IntelliChlor chlorine generator. This system uses regular table salt to produce chlorine in the swimming pool, and regularly regulates the amount of chlorine contained within the pool. It also continually recycles the water to ensure it stays safe for you to swim in.

Compass swimming pools are the ideal choice for saltwater as they are made using a specialist ceramic composite material. As a result, they won’t corrode from salt in the same way that concrete pools do.

We offer a huge variety of pool designs to choose from, including over 30 different shapes and sizes as well as many other customisable options. Utilising our experience and expertise, you could have the pool of your dreams sooner than you think.

Why choose a saltwater pool?

There are a number of reasons why pool owners prefer saltwater to fresh water. Firstly, while it’s true that saltwater pools still contain some chlorine, the concentration is much lower. As a result of this, the pool won’t dry out skin in the same way as highly chlorinated water could. Some people even say that saltwater is much better for it, since it helps to exfoliate it.

Secondly, fresh water pools require the level of chlorine to be very closely maintained, whereas saltwater pools don’t, since the chlorine is regulated by the generator. This reduced reliance on chemicals will, in turn, save you money.

One of the more common issues that saltwater pools get labelled with also isn’t an issue for Compass Pools. Due to the material we use to construct our pools, saltwater is unable to corrode our one-piece ceramic pools in the same way it could in pools made from concrete.

Should you wish to install a saltwater swimming pool, we will also upgrade our stainless-steel fittings to marine grade 316 stainless steel at no extra cost to you.

What our clients say about us…

  • Peter Williams - Eastbourne, Sussex testimonial - featured imageCompass were great throughout the whole process of choosing a pool, ordering it, installing it and tweaking any slight changes since it was finished. It has now been in for a year and I swim every day before breakfast regardless of the weather, snow on the ground etc. We have recently had a pool house finished so I can go straight from the pool into the shower without having to dry first! I would thoroughly recommend Compass for the products they sell and for the service that they provide.

  • Pool with Mini FountainsThere are two aspects to the company, the people and the product. I can't fault either of them. The people are friendly, expert and very helpful. Theirs is a premium product but worth it. The build quality is first rate and the operating system options can give you a package as sophisticated as you wish.
