What does it mean when someone says they have a salt water pool?

Salt water pools have long been popular in Europe and have become more popular in the United States recently.  It is a pool that has a certain parts per million(ppm) of salt(minerals) and is using that as a sanitizer.  Through the conversion of minerals to free available chlorine, or electrolysis, a sanitizer is produced.  Your pool water passes through a cell causing the production of chlorine gas and sodium hydroxide.  When added to water, chlorine gas forms hypochlorous acid which is a chlorinating sanitizer.  This is what keeps your pool clear and silky smooth all season long.  If you have ever been in a salt pool, you probably realized right away what it difference it makes on the feel of your skin.
