If a shipwrecked crew drank salt water would they die?
Yes. If they boiled the water and filtered it in order to remove the salt content, they could survive on it, but salt water straight from the sea dehydrates you rather quickly, due to the high salt content. ...

Why people shouldn't drink ocean water?
Ocean water has i high salt content, and humans use water to level out the salt content in their bodies, so they don't dehydrate. Since ocean water has that high salt content, if you drank to much, you would quickly experience the feelings of diarrhea, and dehydration, and once the human body becomes about 20% dehydrated, that person will die. Drink fresh water instead, or to counteract the salt content of the ocean water. ...
What measures salt content in salt water chlorine generators?
Salt water is a very efficient electrical conductor, in pool applications the current used is low voltage DC to prevent high voltage AC electrocution. In the chlorine generators electronics circuit board there is a DC current sensor set with a value of -/+. If the salt content is low it takes more current to pass through and an alarm would indicate to add more salt. If the salt content is to high, current passes through to easy and alarm would indicate to...
