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

Stop adding salt to the pool and use tablets and shock when needed.

In the Ocean, no it wont. However, in a saltwater pool that is'nt cleaned often, the algae can grow in your hair and turn it green.

It will eat / disfigure the coping and will then turn that into dust that gets in your pool and discolors the plaster.

Simple. turn of the chlorine generator and pretend there is fresh water in there as time wears on the salt will get weaker and weaker.

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.
