Yes,but only if your pool is resin[that is constructed from 100% polymer or plastic]. It is not advisable to use salt in a "steel pool".

Salt in a steel pool is a lousy salesman answer. All Chlorine is made from Salt and the amount needed in your pool is insignificant to what kind of pool you have. Any pool can be salt

Turn of the salt water chlorination and start adding chlorine the same as you would in an ordinary pool.

You could tidy it up a little by removing the saltwater chlorinator element or you could just leave it.
