Most chlorine generators have a setting, or you could shock with chlorine or non chlorine shock.

Most salt boxes will have a button or knob to add more chlorine which is how you may superchlorinate a salt pool. Otherwise there is no problem adding granular chlorine to a salt pool for it is the same sanitizer just added in a different manner.

No, a saltwater pool does not need to be covered.

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.

Superchlorinate manually and brush frequently and back wash the filter as needed. If you have a cartridge filter - remove and clean to start with then clean again after the all algae is gone. You can also set the salt system to superchlorinate. You must brush the walls and floor often to let the chlorine get to the algae on the pool wall surface. Don't maintain a steady level of chlorine residual as algae will become accustomed to those levels and still breed. Check your salt levels also. Ken

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.

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.

Solution weathering occurs when rocks sit in a pool of saltwater.

Yes but it would probably be a bit rough on the eyes until it settled down a bit.

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

Hmm, sounds like you need to superchlorinate and/or clean the filter. Gnats or insects do not breed in pool filters.

Yes it does just like a chlorine pool.

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.

This is a link I found to be useful. I have an above ground saltwater pool. Good luck.

Yes a saltwater pool would be best for you. If you're allergic to cholrine than you certainly wouldn't want to swim in it!

Living creatures are very resistant to pool chemicals and sometimes down right immune. After all, your alive and use the pool right? The best method is to physically remove them, then superchlorinate to kill any remaining bacteria left behind. Pool & Spa

Stop adding salt to the pool and use tablets and shock when needed.

Sure, just throw it in....

That depends on the saltwater chlorination system you are using check with the manufacturer.

saltwater in a pool should be drained every couple of months make sure to have it balanced with other chemicals too -lola5597
