clorine and depending on certain pools salt water.
Chlorine has been linked to asthma in young children.
The same as a normal chlorine pool
Turn of the chlorinating element and start throwing chlorine in yourself. eventually the salt will come out of the pool as time wears on. or you could just replace the water to get the salt out.
Same as an ordinary pool. Ask pool shop for advice.
no need to shock with chlorine but you still have to maintain it like you would with any other pool of water
Get over it. He made a mistake. You may point it out to him nicely of course. BTW it does not hurt or he may have felt that the pool needed it. BTW there is a mode in the salt system to shock the pool thru the system. precipitation
Yes, you can use a combination of salt and chlorine in your pool. Keep in mind that it is still good to shock your pool once per week, or after a rain. Shock is nothing but a high dose of chlorine....
Salt pools still require weekly shock maintenance, but not near the amount that a chlorine pool would need. There are Salt Pool Shock Treatments out there for your particular pool setup.
How often to shock your pool depends on what the water temperature is and I am assuming you are using chlorine tablets as a sanitizer. If you are using a salt generator you really do not need to shock unless you are starting up for the season or you are having a water quality issue. So here are the parameters for shocking your pool. If your water temperatures are below 50� Fahrenheit you should shock the pool once every 4 weeks. If your water temperatures are 50-69� you should shock the pool every 2 weeks. If your water temperatures are 70� you should shock your pool every week. Shock your pool if you have had a heavy rainstorm where you have to drain water out of the pool. A storm like this will drop algae, food for algae and other contaminates into the pool water. Sock your pool if you have an algae or water clarity problem.
Salt generators make the same chemical, sodium hypochlorite, that you buy at the store. The major difference is that it costs a lot more to make than to buy it. See other posts I have made in this arena for more info.A salt water pool IS a chlorine pool. Period! IF it needs shocking you shock it the same way as any chlorine pool, by adding more chlorine either by manually adding it or setting the SWCG to the boost or shock setting.
