A salt water pool is still a chlorine pool, but a weaker form of chlorine if you will! Your PH is affected by the reaction of the "chlorine" with the contamination in the pool. Your salt generated chlorine is working harder to kill the bacteria that it can kill. Therefore there is more "demand" in your pool which will require a more consitant Ph adjustment to keep the chlorine active! The "kill rate" or time it takes to kill, of salt generated chlorine is nearly double that of chlorine. E-coli for instance can live in a chlorine pool for up to 96 hours. A salt pool, as much as 180 hours. YUCK! You should be aware that many common pool bacteria have grown immune to chlorine and salt generated chlorine! Chlorine or salt does not kill Cryptosporidium or Girardia! Science has moved well beyond chemical additon to Swimming Pools. Check the World Health Organizations- Healthy Pool Guidelines! Ultraviolet is the way to go! Jon La
No, a saltwater pool does not need to be covered.
Yes it can. It will require replastering afterward, though.
You can heat a saltwater pool. Options for heating your saltwater pool include solar heating, electric heating, and gas heating.
Many people will say that saltwater systems are as good for your pool as chlorinated systems. Saltwater systems are not as harsh on your pool system or for the people that enjoy the pool itself.
Yes, it's easy! Just add a saltwater chlorinator between the filter pump and the pool intlet. Then add pool salt. Follow the directions in the manual and you will be swimming in your saltwater pool in 24 hours.
You can attach saltwater system to non-Intex pro series pool.
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. thepoolandspawarehouse.com
Since a saltwater pool IS a chlorinated pool (the only difference is how the chlorine is addded since it is manufactured by the SWCG and not added separately) the answer is yes.
no it is v.s. the law saltwater is bad to drink
I don't think there is such a thing as a "SALTWATER POOL CLEANER". You may have a pool cleaning device that works in either a salt pool or a standard no salt pool.
Obviously the pool floor is not smooth.
Add alot of iodine
Solution weathering occurs when rocks sit in a pool of saltwater.
In a typical saltwater swimming pool nothing living other then micro organisms should be able to survive. In a saltwater pool with water, filtration and components designed for marine life, they could.
Yes A salt water pool is a chlorine pool any way the difference is that the chlorine in a saltwater pool is made from the salt electronically
Yes you can
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.
Yes it does just like a chlorine pool.
This is a link I found to be useful. I have an above ground saltwater pool. Good luck. http://ezinearticles.com/?Above-Ground-Pool-Winterization-is-Not-Just-About-Pool-Chemicals&id=1492615
