    Hi everybody,

    Comment traduiriez-vous "piscine au sel", dans le cadre d'une présentation d'un hébergement touristique...?

    Merci de vos réponses

    Welcome to the forum Sweetkaro,

    just to make sure that the members will understand correctly. Piscine au sel means swimming pool with salted water or do you talk about the water filtering mechanism using salt rather than chemical products ?

    If the place is on the coast and the pool is filled from the sea, perhaps "sea-water swimming pool".

    To Anna, soror,

    water filtering mechanism I think, because the man insisted on the fact that it was not "piscine d'eau salée".

    Thanks

    It sounds like it is a swimming pool with salt chlorinator.

    En français il me semble qu'on dit: piscine chlorée au sel, ou piscine à l'eau chlorée au sel, et non piscine au sel.
    Pour les piscines remplies d'eau de mer (très à la mode dans les années 80-90), on dit: piscine d'eau de mer, piscine d'eau salée...

    "Salt chlorinator" me semble le + approprié pour mon sujet,

    Merci à vous !
