Willoughby Hills, OH, June 18, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Pine Ridge Apartments and The Village at Pine Ridge, consisting of high and mid-rise, garden style, and townhouse apartment homes, offer both indoor and outdoor pools to residents. Over the winter, owner-manager Goldberg Companies decided to convert the indoor pool to saltwater after significant research and based upon the success of saltwater pool implementations at its South Carolina property. Marcia Long Woznicki, Goldberg Companies Senior Vice President, says, “Saltwater pools still contain chlorine but the concentration is milder.”
As stated on the Livestrong.com website, all pools require treatment to sanitize the water to eliminate threats of bacteria, viruses and other contaminants. By utilizing a gentler method of pool sanitation with saltwater though, the side effects tend to lessen in comparison to traditionally chlorinated pools (http://www.livestrong.com/article/245224-what-are-the-benefits-of-a-salt-water-pool/). This sentiment was echoed by a 19 Action News series in April posing the question, “Chlorine or salt water for your pools?” http://www.19actionnews.com/story/25158594/chlorine-or-salt-water-for-your-pools.
Christine Venaleck, Director of Marketing for Goldberg Companies, notes the reduction of harsh pool chemicals offers benefits not only to swimmers but to the environment as well. “As eco-conscious initiatives continue to be at the forefront of everyone’s minds, we investigate ways for our properties to be more environmentally friendly. Reducing the amount of chemicals in our community pool fosters this ideal.”
According to Bob Trimper, Property Manager of Pine Ridge, “Despite the upfront cost, the benefits of a saline pool made it well worth the investment. Our residents appreciate the softer water and have noted less chlorine irritation than they experience in fresh water pools. We hold our residents in the highest regard and make it a priority to provide them with superior service and amenities. We are the only apartment complex in Lake County with not only an outdoor pool, but also an indoor saltwater pool to cater to the preferences of all residents.”
