I assume you mean the salt water unit is rated up to 40,000 gallons.

The salt water unit rating is based on some assumption of the number of hours the unit (and pool pump) is turned on. You might need to run your pool pump for a longer period of time than the rating to get the proper amount of chlorine. This will cost you more in electricity, however. Check the assumption for pump hours for the 40,000 gallon number.

You probably won't be able to use the inline chlorine generator for shocking the pool (some generators have a built-in shock function) since it may not build up chlorine fast enough for that purpose.

Can you use salt and chlorine in your pool?

Yes as a mater of fact that is what salt water pool normally is. With a salt water pool there is a electronic salt water chlorinator installed that uses the salt in the water to create chlorine. However if you don't have a salt water chlorinator and prefer the feeling of a salt water pool then there is no reason not to add salt to the pool as well as keeping up the chlorine yourself.

How do you start a salt water pool?

To start a salt water pool you will need a salt generator/salt cell which has a unit that is plumbed into your swimming pool system, and a power source for the cell. You would then follow the manufacturer's directions to add salt to your pool until the residual salt level was at typically 2700-3400ppm in your pool. For a typical 25,000 gallon pool this would most likely be between 14-18 40lb bags of salt. You do not need to remove the chlorine from your pool, as your new system will also be generating chlorine. (which was one answer that I saw on a discussion board). Also, salt water is much more saline than a salt water pool, so you would not use salt water from the ocean to start your system. Just in case you were wondering.

My first question is - do you have a salt generating system on that size pool?

I will be adding what the directions say. Thanks!

Why a salt water pool?

Most people believe having a salt water pool is like swimming in the ocean. Nottrue. Salt water pools use the salt to make chlorine. With a salt water pool you will still be using chlorine a toxic chemical to sanitize your pool.

Will switching from chlorine chemical system to a salt water system ruin pool?

No A salt water pool is in fact also chlorine pool, the difference being that with a salt water pool a salt water chlorinator converts the salt that is in the water into chlorine gas which is then dissolved into the water while the filter is running. the conversion wont have any adverse effects on the pool.
