The Salins Group is one of the main salt producers in Europe. We have extensive knowledge of salt harvesting and the various properties of salt. Several production techniques are used to obtain salt: the agricultural method for sea salt, the thermal method for evaporated salt or mining technology for rock salt.
Where salt for pools comes from
• The salt used for electrochlorination of swimming pools comes exclusively from refined salt. This salt is obtained from underground salt deposits, formed by the deposits left by ancient seas, which are then dissolved by injecting fresh water.
• Brine (highly concentrated salt water) obtained in this way is brought to the surface to be evaporated in a vacuum, in large evaporators, at the bottom of which the salt crystallizes. This is a very pure salt, which is the most suitable for electrochlorination of swimming pool water.
