== == Yes, Any pool can be converted to a salt water pool All that is needed to do this is the installation of chlorine generator this is put inline in an appropriate spot on the pools existing filtration system and the installation of the electronic control system. and of course the saltIt must be remembered however that a salt water pool uses the salt in the water to create its own chlorine. The salt used for this is usually sodium chloride but now a system is becoming available tat uses a far healthier and Eco friendly mix of Magnesium chloride and potassium chloride,

Bromine is an additive that you put in a pool to sanitize the water. Chlorine is an additive that you put in a pool to sanitize the water. Salt is added to some pools to allow it to be converted electronically to chlorine with a salt water chlorinator.

Yes. A bad one too. If you swim at an outdoor or public pool, you will have smelled the chlorine that is added to clean the water. The taste is the same. Chlorine is used in the process or water purification and it can sometimes be tasted in your drinking water. Too much chlorine in your drinking water can cause erosive esophagitis. Its similar to heartburn but harder to get rid of.

You need to treat it because of the chlorine in the water, to much will kill the fish! Keo depends on the amount of water with chlorine you mix with water that has no chlorine. also sunlight takes chlorine out of water so outdoor ponds don't need it Yes, always treat. You can leave out tap water for the chlorine to evaporate out however, chlorine is not the only additve in tap water that is deadly to fish. Chloramine is just as deadly and does not evaporate.

I assume it is an outdoor pool and that you are adding sufficient chlorine. Two reasons why it won't hold chlorine. . . 1. No, or insufficient, conditioner. Sunlight will destroy the chlorine if conditioner is not within 50-80ppm. 2. Phosphates and/or nitrates in the water. Get these checked at your local pool store - or send me a water sample if you can't find anyone to test.E-mail me for address.

A Chlorine Analyzer analyzes free chlorine or total chlorine in water to monitor chlorine dosage. It is frequently used in water and waste water plants to control chlorine dosage.

Chlorine water filters are used to remove chlorine from a source of water. It can be used to remove the taste of chlorine from water and is often used in pools.

Simple just turn of the salt chlorinator and start treating it as a chlorine pool. A salt water pool is in fact a chlorine pool . the salt in the ater is converted into chlorine gass ellectronicaly and then desolved into the water. If you want to convert to the old way of chlorinating, simply keep an eye on chlorine levels and dont run the chlorinator. Ignore the salt it will weaken over time.

Chlorine atoms do not combine with the water molecules, which, therefore, means that Chlorine doesn't react with water. That is why Chlorine is used in swimming pools.

Yes, chlorine is soluble in water.

Water with Chlorine is used in induustry.

the chlorine increases the water purity .

Chlorine doesn't explode when mixed with water. Pool water has chlorine in it. I think you meant sodium mixed with water, which does explode.

You need to buy a chlorine-free bottle, to get rid of the chlorine from the water. Since no fish can live inside chlorine. And chlorine is mixed with tap water.

The chlorine is reacting to minerals in the water.

Chlorine is not deliquescent, but is dissolved in water.

water converted into ice at 0c

The tap water has chlorine in it, so if chlorine cleans water it can clean things as well as water.

Chlorine is added to water to kill pathogens.

To drinking water chlorine or chlorine compounds are added for disinfection.

Yes, chlorine is damaging to hair I know , because if you get in water with chlorine strands of your hair will be left in the water.

chlorine water + sunlight gives chlorine and oxygen in normal STP conditions .

No, salt water does not evaporate faster than chlorine water. Salt water contains chlorine. Therefore, they both evaporate at about the same rate.

Many people install salt water systems under the impression that it is chlorine free. Salt water systems produce chlorine electronically and therefore does not require adding chlorine to the water physically. So salt water is not chlorine free water. There are alternative pool sanitation systems that use an advanced oxidation process, combined with copper ionization to sanitize the water. These oxygen based systems do not produce any chlorine. These systems produce 100% chlorine free water.

Total Residual Chlorine (TRC) is the total of free available residual chlorine and combined (bound) residual chlorine. The amount of measurable chlorine remaining after treating water with chlorine i.e. amount of chlorine left in water after the chlorine demand has been satisfied

Just the same as not putting enough chlorine in the pool. You can treat the water the same as you would have and increase the production of the salt system.
