If you own a salt pool and you need to raise the salt level, go buy NON-IODIZED salt and add the appropriate amount (as determined by your particular salt-chlorinator's owners' manual) to get the level to where it needs to be. The salt addition process is nothing fancy; cut the corner of the bag with a box cutter and pour in the pool then sweep any that is resting on the bottom to get it to dissolve. Note: Adding salt is not shocking your pool, rather it is loading the gun that can be used to superchlorinate or "Shock" your water.
