No, a saltwater pool is already a chlorine pool. ALL CHLORINE EVENTUALLY BECOMES SALT. Every pool that has ever had chlorine in it has salt in it.

No not alll. I had a chlorine system first. We transitioned to a salt system with no problems.

Drain some of your pool and refill it with fresh water.

To change a chlorine pool into a saltwater pill, it is important to drain it. From there, you want to wash the pool to get the chlorine residue off. Then, you want to buy new equipment. Add water, then add the salt, but not until the pH is balanced.

No chlorine does not last long out in the oppen.

The only way to lower your cya level in your swimming pool is to partially drain your pool and fill with fresh water that will lower it or if you want to lower it to almost nothing completely drain your pool and start over but keep in mind chlorine tablets will raise your CYA level More information in the related link below.

Honestly, the best thing to do is drain the pool and start from scratch with the chlorine. Been there, done that.

You need to test the rest of your water chemistry if it is out of balance you will continue to be yellow. Condider putting only enough chlorine to have 2-3 PPM PH 7.2-7.6 Alkalinity 80-120 CYA around 80 ppm.Make sure your filter is kept clean.

You drain the water then plaster the walls from inside

The half life of chlorine is one hour. If it is 30ppm at 10am. It will be 15ppm at 11am. Then 7.5ppm at 12pm. But at 1pm it will level off at the ppm that is adequetly protected by stabilizer(cyanuric acid). 40ppm of stabilizer protects 6ppm of chlorine. So, if you have 40ppm of stabilizer in pooll, you will have 6ppm of chlorine at 1pm. Now to lower chlorine you will either drain poolwater or add 8 oz. of ammonia a day until desired chlorine level. BE CAREFUL!!! ammonia eats up stabilizer, sodium bicarb, and chlorine. Only add correct amount!!!!

You don't drain an inground swimming pool, unless you are trained to do so. Doing it alone or even with assistance is extremely dangerous. Save yourself some trouble and go contact a local and trained swimming pool cleaning service.

Installing swimming pool lights is very difficult. It requires you to drain the water from the pool, and then to drill a place to mount the swimming pool lights.

I, myself, would drain it - especially after a natural disaster.

Would advise that you get a professional to address the situation first hand. The main drain is intrigal to your circulation.

When saltwater is boiled, the water in it evaporates. If the water is boiled long enough, all the water in the saltwater will evaporate; leaving all the salt in the water at the bottom of the pot. If you can catch the evaporated water with a clear plastic then drain it, that is how they make fresh water from salt water.

Yes. a snake can go about anywhere it has a mind to. They climb trees, go up drain pipes to get on a roof. It surely could climb a step ladder to get into the pool. It more than likely wouldn't want to if chlorine was present.

If you have long hair, you should wear it up in a ponytail, bun, or braid. This is because, your hair can clog the drain if it's down. It may hurt a bit when you take out the hair elastic because of the chlorine, but just have a shower right after. Hope this helps.

Use the main drain when backwashing, rinsing, or vacuuming. Use skimmer all other times to filter.

no, unless there is something being put in a drain nearby that has a lot of chlorine in it such as pool water. Sewer gas generally smells like an out house.

If its not connected through the skimmer I imagine it's there to empty it. hmmm, on the above. The main drain in pools is for circulating the lower part of the pool and is not intended to drain the pool as in a bath tub.

Dilution. You would need to drain and replace some of the water in the pool.

There are a number of different methods you could use to keep ducks away from your swimming pool. You could for example cover or drain your pool when you are not using it.

If the swimming pool water is milky, it is advisable to have the level of stabiliser (cyanuric acid) tested. A level of over 80ppm in the pool water is likely to lead to "chlorine lock" which can turn the water milky. If the problem is the stabiliser, you will need to drain some of the swimming pool water and refill with fresh water to bring the stabiliser level down to 30-50ppm. To avoid the level getting out of control, use a non-stabilised chlorine product such as calcium hypochlorite.

Wait. The sun and time will reduce the residual chlorine. Or . . . Drain some water from the pool and add fresh. I don't recommend this inasmuch as you'd have to drain more than half your pool to cut the chlorine concentration in half (because of the residual chlorine of municipal tap water). thats easy, the sun will do all of the work for you. just dont swim in it for a couple of days, and the sun will evaporate the extra remaining clorine. i know this from experience!:D
