Sure, you CAN, but why would you want to? The purpose of the salt in a saltwater system equipped pool is to provide the chlorine the saltwater system generates. It would be the same as having a saltwater system pool that the saltwater system went bad and you just installed an inline chlorinator in the Plumbing instead of replacing the saltwater chlorine generator system so you could add chlorine with the tablets.

Bromine, but that is hard on your skin. They also have a salt system, where your pool is salt water and the filter cleans the salt, and the water.

eye dint now Well, you probably could, we have a pool and we mix chlorine and salt together for our water.

you have to replace then entire filter system as they use different processes to treat the water.

A chlorinating system like Autopilot etc.. And then just add salt to your pool.

NO Fiberglass salt water pools are a great system regardless of where you use them.

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.

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.

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.

IT is crucial to use stabilizer in your pool when youre sanitizing your water with salt. Unlike the traditional chlorine that has stabilizer built in the chlorine generated by your system is unstabilized and very likely to be destroyed by sunlight.

You do need to add something to your already existing filter system that changes salt into chlorines so that it sanitizes your pool. The name of that device is a salt water generator. It consists of a cell plumbed in after your filter and an electrical control system that monitors the cells performance.

No you will not have a salt water pool. yes you will have salt water but the actual electronic plates found in a genrator converts the salt in the water to chlorine to sanitize the pool water. A: You have to have the mechanical device to produce the chlorine in a salt pool. THE SALT A MEANS TO PRODUCE CHLORINE FOR YOUR POOL!

A salt water swimming pool is a pool that has had salt added to it in order to be able to use the salt in water that is circulated through the filtration system and run it through a chlorinator. This is a set of elements that electronically create chlorine gas that is almost instantly dissolved into the water to sanitise it. The concentration of salt in the water is about 1/8 that of sea water or about the same as that in tears.

A fresh water swimming pool is a swimming pool that does not use a saltwater chlorinator. A pool that used a salt water chlorinator has salt added to it to so that a salt water chlorinator can electronically convert part of the salt into chlorine. A fresh water pool has chlorine added to it directly either manually or Automatically.

There are two types of salt based pool chlorinators. More expensive and less common are those with a separate salt tank and these will normally use tablet salt for water softeners. The more common type is where salt is added to the swimming pool itself. In the UK we most commonly use PDV salt - that is Pure Dried Vacuum Salt or table salt. Granular salt for water softeners can be used. Tablet salt for water softeners should be avoided unless you have a white liner, because the tablets may bleach spots on the pool liner before dissolving. Julian Hobday of KindWater.

We have been told it is safe and much more cost effective to put in a salt system for our above ground pool. I would like to be very sure before I invest.

3 bags ,my pool system works with temperature.Salt system will only work when water is at 73F.

THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE A "SALT WATER POOL" DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SPECIAL TEST KIT. THE FACT IS THAT YOU HAVE A SALT SYSTEM ON THE POOL PLUMBING THAT MAKES CHLORINE AND THAT THE SALT IS ADDED TO THE POOL HAS NO FACTOR IN THE EQUASION. Either way salt or standard pool ( AND IT IS NOT A SALT POOL - IT IS A SALT SYSTEM POOL THAT HAS A SALT GENERATOR INSTALLED IN THE PLUMBING) it is still a regular pool. Purchase a good test kit at the pool supply store not one of those cheap ones and learn how to use it and use it often. Keep it and it's chemicals out of the direct sunlight. Store the kit inside the house in a cool dry place. The kit only has a shelf life of about one season and the solutions even less. Solutions and test kits that are old will give you false readings.

A salt water pool is a chlorine pool, part of the salt is converted into chlorine electronically. I have found that regardless of the disinfection system used in a pool that the use of chlorine is the easiest and most reliable. The beauty with salt is the water fees better and you don't have to store and handle chlorine which is corrosive at best and explosive at worst. These day you can even go shopping for the type of salt you wish to use to benefit your health and the gardens around the pool.

Same as an ordinary pool. Ask pool shop for advice.

The only reason to use salt in a pool is so that it can be broken down by an electrolytic cell, into chlorine. There is absolutely no reason to use salt if you dont have a salt system.

yes Yes But not at the same concentration as sea water

you can use flocculants in any type of pool system(the alum will not react in the salt cell), but it's rarely a necessity to get your water clear. it's mainly a marketing ploy. stick with shock, lots of chlorine tabs, and daily backwashing until it's clear.

Salt water pools are chlorine pools, the difference is that a fresh water pool has chlorineadded by the operator, while a salt water pool has a chlorine generator that electronically creates chlorine while the filtration system is running I does this by separating chlorine gas out of the salt in the water and dissolving it back into the water. most salt water chlorinator pools use common salt or sodium chloride, which is the same as the salt found in sea water, only at a much lower concentration. A new system is available now that that uses magnesium chloride and sodium chloride, the advantage with this is that it is not harmful to use the backwash for watering the garden and it has a therapeutic effect on swimmers.

Work out what size pool you have how much salt is required and purchase the right size system to suit your needs.
