Make sure your water is balanced and add salt (sodium chloride). You need to purchase a saltwater chlorine generator and you'll need to calculate the amount of salt you need. You would need to bring your pool salt content up to 3,000 ppm.

Concentration is the amount (by weight) of salt in water and can be expressed in parts per million (ppm). Here are the classes of water:

* Fresh water - less than 1,000 ppm

* Slightly saline water - From 1,000 ppm to 3,000 ppm

* Moderately saline water - From 3,000 ppm to 10,000 ppm

* Highly saline water - From 10,000 ppm to 35,000 ppm

Ocean water has a salinity that is approximately 35,000 ppm.

There is now a system with a healthier salt available Magnesium and Potassium Chloride. it is more expensive but in my opinion it is also much better and halthier than Sodium chloride. The aticle I am using is from poolrite

Salt water pools are in fact chlorine pools part of the salt is turned into chlorine by the salt water chlorinater If it works in a normally chlorinated pool it should also work in a salt water pool.
