Having a home pool is one of the joys of living in Florida, but it doesn’t come about without some unpleasant chores. Thankfully, the days of schlepping those ancient, yellow chlorine jobs to and from the pool store can be over if you’re willing to make an investment in an automated pool chlorination system.

These days, technology has advanced chlorination - a necessary task to keep pool water sanitized - to the point where simple table salt can be added to the water and converted into the proper and steady level of chlorine. These systems help eliminate the need to “shock” the pool with hyper-doses of chemicals that can agitate the skin and eyes of swimmers.

Here are four pool chlorination systems that will put some added fun into your pool season.
