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.

Yes, actually, if you put floaters in and use this in conjunction with your salt system it could save you money on your run time of the pool equipment. Plus, the stabilizer and negative PH in tricolor sticks or tablets helps with stabilizer and water balance.

I confused this product with YPS, yellow prussiate of soda, which is an additive used in some salt that turns salt water pool water yellow. However, I continue to search for a better stabilizer than cyanuric acid, which accoringly remains in the water for ever?

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.

you have to aid a conditioner or stabilizer with cynaric acid in it.

If you use tablets, they come with stabilizer, so extra stabilizer is not needed. If you use calcium chloride power, then you may have to invest in some cyanuric acid at your pool store.

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!

STABILIZERCyanuric acid holds chlorine in the pools water protecting it from losses caused by the sun. I a pool is not properly stabilized it may use up to 2 times as much chlorine. Stabilizer is usually added once at the beginning of the season

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.

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.

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

yes Yes But not at the same concentration as sea water

Table salt is edible, for human use - pool salt no.

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

The Chlorine generator is what causes the high PH and its not a Salt Water Pool Hmmm....if it's not a salt water pool then why is there a chlorine generator? Just use your test kit and add acid when the pH is high.

You can vacuum a salt water pool the same way you would a non salt water pool. If you are vacuuming on the filter setting, your filter will help to clean the debris out of the pool. If you are dealing with a very dirty pool and use the waste setting, you will be wasting some of the water from the pool in the process. Depending on how much water you take out and need to refill, you will most likely need to add some salt back in to get your salt level back to normal operating levels.

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

Salt is put into swimming pools so that the water from the pool can be run through a salt water chlorinator which produces chlorine to disinfect the pools water.

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.

In the newer pools that use salt to keep them conditioned, the water does not taste particularly salty.

Add cyanuric acid or stabilizer to maintain the chlorine in the pool.

You scrub the pool and filter the water. Or scrub the pool and do a water change. Some people use salt as an algae inhibitor and they do make salt for pools. You can get it at Walmart or home improvement stores, or at pool stores.

Absolutely! Morton actually sells pool salt. When it comes to using a salt generator on your pool you want to make sure you're using the cleanest salt availible, never anything to quality of rock salt. As it pertains to salt for your pool I always tell my customer, "If you wouldn't put on your food, don't put it in 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 chlorinating system like Autopilot etc.. And then just add salt to your pool.
