Saltwater Pool Warranty Coverage

Saltwater Pool Warranty Coverage

Saltwater pools have been around for decades, but they have become more and more common in American backyards in recent years. There’s good reason. Saltwater pools have a number of advantages over their traditional chlorine counterparts.

If you have a saltwater pool or are thinking of investing in one, consider pool home warranty coverage to help you maintain and repair your pool’s components and equipment. Liberty Home Guard’s swimming pool warranties can provide convenience, peace of mind, and remarkable savings.

Advantages of a Saltwater Pool

Unlike traditional pools, saltwater pools use salt chlorine generators to create chlorine and make the pool water suitable for swimming. This makes saltwater pools superior to traditionally chlorinated pools in several ways.

  • Gentler water. Saltwater pools use less chlorine while still creating a safe swimming environment. This means the pool water is much gentler on your eyes, skin, and hair.
  • Weaker chlorine odor. Lower amounts of chlorine also mean that you’re spared that powerful chemical smell.
  • Lower costs. A saltwater pool’s equipment may be a bit more costly up front, but the annual costs are lower than they are for chlorine pools.
  • Safer. Saltwater pools don’t require you to handle large quantities of chlorine, which can cause severe irritation if it sloshes on your skin. This also means you can avoid bleaching your clothes with chlorine.
  • Silkier water. The salt in a saltwater pool isn’t significant enough to make the water feel like the ocean—you probably won’t be able to even taste the salt—but there’s enough of it in there to give the water a silky, gentle feel.

How to Get a Home Warranty for Saltwater Pool Equipment

Saltwater pools may be slightly lower maintenance than chlorine pools, but they do require upkeep just the same, of course. Also, salt chlorine generators and other saltwater pool equipment are still susceptible to malfunction and wear and tear.

A home warranty plan for saltwater pools are an excellent way to manage maintenance costs and prepare yourself for the time when a piece of equipment requires professional repair.

Liberty Home Guard provides saltwater pool coverage as an additional option for our suite of home warranty plans. Our policy will cover your saltwater pool cell, pump, filtration system, and chlorinator.

What Does a Saltwater Pool Warranty Cover?

Saltwater pool warranties typically cover defects in materials and workmanship, ensuring that your pool components meet the manufacturer's standards. Common components covered by warranties include:

  1. Salt Chlorine Generator (SCG): The heart of a saltwater pool system, the SCG converts salt into chlorine to sanitize the water. Warranty coverage for the SCG often includes electronic components, cell plates, and housing.

  2. Pool Surface: The warranty may cover issues such as cracking, delamination, or discoloration of the pool surface. This can include materials like fiberglass, vinyl, or plaster.

  3. Plumbing and Equipment: Warranties often extend to the plumbing and equipment associated with the saltwater pool system, including pumps, filters, heaters, and controllers.

  4. Structural Integrity: Some warranties may cover structural defects, ensuring that the pool shell remains sound and free from leaks or damage.

Understanding Warranty Terms and Conditions

While saltwater pool warranties offer valuable protection, it's essential to familiarize yourself with the terms and conditions outlined by the manufacturer. Here are some key factors to consider:

  1. Coverage Duration: Warranties typically have a specified duration, ranging from a few years to a decade or more. Understanding the length of coverage can help you plan for maintenance and potential repairs.

  2. Exclusions: Take note of any exclusions outlined in the warranty. Common exclusions may include normal wear and tear, improper installation, or neglectful maintenance practices.

  3. Maintenance Requirements: Manufacturers often require proof of regular maintenance to validate warranty claims. This may include keeping detailed records of water chemistry levels, cleaning routines, and servicing of equipment.

  4. Authorized Service Providers: Some warranties stipulate that repairs or replacements must be carried out by authorized service providers to remain valid. Be sure to check if there are certified technicians in your area.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • What is a home warranty?

    A home warranty is a service contract that covers the cost of repairs and replacements for your home’s systems and appliances when they break down over time from normal wear and tear.

  • How does a home warranty work?

    It’s simple, you can select the coverage plan of your choice that is the best fit for your home and budget.

    When you request service for a covered item, you will be charged a pre-set fee in order to initiate the service request.

    With an LHG home warranty, when a covered item needs repair, simply follow these steps:

    • File a claim online or call.
    • After paying your set fee, we’ll put you in contact with a local contractor to schedule your appointment.
    • After officially diagnosing the problem, the contractor will contact us to make sure the issue is covered by your plan.
    • If everything checks out, the contractor will then repair or replace the item in question.

  • How is a home warranty different from homeowner’s insurance?

    The main difference is that a manufacturer’s warranty generally covers the failed part of a single appliance, but usually doesn’t include the cost of labor or repair.

    A home warranty protects the homeowner’s budget by removing the risk of fluctuating expenses when big ticket items break down.
