remove the salt
You can but is not recommended. Rock salt takes longer to dissolve and it can stain your pool because it contains impurities.
First, find out what the stains are. Iron staining? Stain from using Morton System Saver salt pellets? Algae? Your pool service man should be able to tell you. Then take the appropriate action to remove - ask your local pool shop or pool service person.
The best way to add salt to the water is to split the bag open and pour the salt onto the steps. This way the ink on the bag will not stain the pool and by putting the salt on the steps your Kreepy Krawly or other automated pool cleaner will not suck the salt up.
Salt does not stain you probably have calcium stains. This can be cleaned with a solution of muriatic or hydrochloric acid. try a test piece first and be careful for your eyes.
My experience is that the stains will go away by themselves, through the effects of the chlorination of the water. Does not matter if the pool is a salt pool or fresh water pool. If the pool has a plaster finish, brushing the stains with a wire pool brush will speed up the process.
Remove the salt chlorinatorand stop adding salt, then revert to your prefered method. Ozone is becoming very popular now.
try "scrubbing" the area with coarse salt. after that try bleach.
Remove some of the water and refill it with fresh water.
I have a salt water system and recently had my pool resurfaced. There was no staining. If you put your salt in the skimmer like you we're supposed to there should be no staining, If you put your salt directly into your pool it could stain from the minerals in the salt. If you used table salt there will be much less staining than if you used road salt. ANSWER:: You should NEVER use road salt or table salt. Wrong chemical make up! Follow directions on the "pool salt" bag. The salt goes into the pool and not the skimmer!! You must brush any salt that lingers on the floor until it is mostly dissolved. DO NOT add salt until the water has filtered for at least 24 to 36 hrs. or that recommended by the manufacturer or pool builder. Do not rely on other people to tell you what needs to be done. GO to the source -- builder - manufacturer. You should not have staining if the above basics are followed. Additionally, you must run the standard pool equipment for about 2 weeks or more. This gives the plaster time to cure properly. The salt system can and most likely be installed by the builder as he installs the pump and filter. The salt system unit will not be turned on until the plaster has cured. After the cure you must follow procedures on the proper start-up of the salt system. K
Use a 10% solution of pool acid and wash with water
